NEVER ever sign anything with blank spaces. Are you dealing with a manangement company or an individual landlord? I do leases all the time and deal with different management companies. If its a legible lease I never leave blank spaces. Make sure you have inititialed and verified information on every page.
You want to verify all information you never know if you have to go to court one day or an issue arises. If they won't give you an amount, write 0 in there. Make sure you make a copies before giving it back to them - in case they change the amount after you sign (you just never know?). Then you might have a Landlord/Tenant Issue and will have to dispute in Housing Court. The number to the Bronx Housing Court is (718) 466-3025.
Best of Luck!
