Hope you're not an agent. You're violating a bunch of Fair Housing laws.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Sorry, but the lowest you can find in Manhattan(Inwood, Washington Heights, Harlem) is around $1250 for studio. Income requirement is 40X the rent.

Hi Alan,

NYC occupancy law prohibits more than three unrelated people from living in an apartment whether it's rent stabilized, market rent or a condo or coop sublet.

While common, it is illegal in NYC for more than three unrelated people to share an apartment.

It "should" be OK. However, you may have to put down an extra deposit, depending on the building.

Brian Cushman answered:
Typically the 15% broker fee is paid upfront when you are signing the lease and providing the first month's rent and security deposit. That fee is generally split betwen the broker representing the owner and the broker representing you. If you are representing yourself, you can certainly try to ask the listing broker if they would consider reducing the fee to half. Some may reduce while others may not.

If you break your lease early, you would not been entitled to a rebate of the broker fee. Moreover, you may actually be responsible for the remainder of the lease payments even if you no longer live there unless your landlord is willing to let you out of your lease early.

You should check with your landlord/management company - they may allow you to do so and ask to put their original one back before you move out.

Yes. Unfortunately, the home owner doesn't have to offer a lease to you and keep you month to month. He can offer his townhouse, when sold, to be delivered vacant.

Perhaps your question was cut off, what information are you looking for...if looking to rent much will depend on the individual landlord....

Terry Farnsworth answered:
While your credit score is important, landlords generally do not make a determination based on that alone. Employment history, length of time at your current job, income, and references all play an equally important (if not more important) part. The fact that you would be willing to put down a larger deposit, and/or pre-pay a few months will definitely help also.

My suggestion would be to be as honest as possible when applying. Write a short letter to accompany the application, detailing your situation and the circumstances that are "driving" your less than perfect credit score.

As a rental property owner myself, I understand that it's unrealistic to expect everyone to have an 800 credit score. If someone applied who had an unpaid medical bill 5 years ago on their credit report, I'm going to obviously weigh that differently than someone who has recently racked up 5 credit cards and is running from creditors.

Everyone makes mistakes. My credit report was haunted for years by a check I bounced in college from a pizza I ordered at 2AM. Explain your situation - and highlight the fact that you have sufficient income and stellar references from previous landlords. That would, in my opinion, carry much more weight than a mistake you made 6 years ago. The landlord really just wants to know that at the end of the day that currently, you will be able, and willing, to pay your rent when due every month.

Hope that helps!

Hi Michelle. This is a tough question to answer without seeing your apartment. :-) My suggestion is to have in mind how much you can/want to pay and ask the super what his rate is. Let him give you a price first, then take it from there. Good luck! ... more
