Renting an apartment in LA with bad credit, possible?

I'm moving to LA next week and found a temporary place that doesnt do credit checks. My rental history is clean but my overall credit is bad. Will I be able to rent anything decent? I have a lot of money saved up and could even pay for the entire year up front in cash, (looking to rent something between 1000-1200 a month downtown) will this help me out? My negatives are bad credit history, no proof of income (I work from home and do consulting work which is not consistent and use a 1099) which makes me think I'll only be eligible for month to month places which usually suck or I'd have to get a co signer? Thanks.
