    Me and my partner both have bad credit.

    We desperately need to rent a place. Really urgently. Is there ANYTHING at all we can do to improve our credit WHILST paying off the debts.

    Our debts don't amount to too much, around 3k together. But we need to move away asap and can only clear the 3k in around 4-5 months.

    Do many landlords really accept double deposit as insurance? Would i sound stupid if i phoned an estate agents to ask this? Has anyone done this?
