Could I register for an apartment under one of my family's name with their consent if my credit score is bad ?

If the LL were to allow it, sure.

You are suggesting fraud as opposed to the easier way around this...using that same person as a guarantor.
They guarantee the rent, meaning if you don't pay, they can go after your family member with better credit.

Not sure what you mean. If you'd be pretending to be someone else, that wouldn't work because photo id is needed in most places to rent an apartment. If they apply for the apartment but only you live there would likely be an issue since you wouldn't be on the lease.

This would be fraud. You can get them as a guarantor if the landlord agrees.

No, you cannot. That would be fraud and stealing someone's identity. If YOU intend to live there, YOU have to apply as YOU, under who YOU are. Nobody else.Source(s): Certified Paralegal, with 25+ years' experience & with Landlord & Tenant law experience.

They would have to be a guarantor for the rent. Meaning if you don't pay, they do, and if they don't pay, you get evicted and it goes on your record, and their credit is ruined.
YOU cannot pass yourself off as another person. THAT will land you in prison.

The person who's credit is used needs to be one of the tenants in the apartment.
If the person isn't going to live there, then the landlord is not going to accept their name for the credit check.

That would be fraud which would be illegal.

Nope and the apartment management would not allow it
They could go on the lease with you as co-renters-but you can not use them as being you
