Can I Provide My own credit report?

Posted by yes, Anastasia on September 01, 2001 at 09:05:33:

I'm about to go to New York to search for apartments. I'm told I'll probably have to go to several places and apply to a coupld of landlords, and that's why I'll need several copies of each document needed. For instance, I'm told my future employer will have to give me 3 or 4 copies on company letterhead stating my job and salary because I'll probably have to apply at a couple of places before I'm accepted.

Now, more importantly, there is a fee for credit checks. Fees ranging from 20 - 80 bux.Can I provide a copy of my own credit report, one that I've just ordered and printed out and not have to pay the same fee several times?

Also, I don't have much credit, so wouldn't it look bad if 4 credit pulls were made in a weeks time? It seems to me I should be able to add a copy to my documents and not have to pay again for a credit check. Any ideas? Anyone tried this? will landlords go for this? or do they typically like checking credit so they can overcharge for this joy?

Thanks in advance
