Rentals in Forest Hills>Question Details

Amber Kurke, Renter in Forest Hills, Queens,...

I have a great income and poor credit and my partner has great credit and limited income. What are our rental options?

Asked by Amber Kurke, Forest Hills, Queens, NY Thu Jan 3, 2013

We are relocating to New York, preferably Astoria/Forest Hills Queens or Park Slope area of Brooklyn. I have an excellent income and work for a top bank my partner is in the movie industry and has great credit. My credit on the other hand is not so great. I was laid off and out of work for two years and have been working to build my credit. Looking for 3 bedroom for around 3,000 possibly more for the right place.

For available rentals in the Queens area check or work with an agent; also check local print media for by owner rentals, always verify ownership before exchanging any money; word of mouth, etc. As for your options, much will depend on the landlord, however do have your proof of employment/pay stubs readily available, possibly some reference letters, etc.

If you are still on the hunt, please email me. We have a lot of options for poor credit history which is one the biggest road blocks this day and time.

Hello. It is possible to find something for you. Though, the better your credit, the more options you may have, there is still inventory available that may be just right for you. Consider working with an Agent who could assist you in your search, negotiate on your behalf, and ultimately, assist you in getting into your new home.

As with most in things in life, presentation matters. One can highlight the strength of an applicant and mitigate weaknesses. For example in your case you were laid off for 2 years due to the fact that you were in the finance industry. Post 2008, the finance industry underwent substantial and lasting downturn. Given these facts and circumstances, it will not be inconceivable to explain your laps of employment and any impact it may have had on your credit history. To the extent that you require any further assistance and/ or attention, I will be happy to discuss this matter with you. Coincidently, I happen to have a 3 bedroom 2 bath listing with parking in a very nice area in Queens by the water front with city views duplex apartment

Good mornng,
You will not have a problem. Landlords need to know and they need proof of income most importantly. If you can prove good income and maybe a couple of bank statements to support it you will be fine.

Generally just disclose your true information(especially the total income) and get reference letters from employess, places of worship, etc.
