I ask because instead of jan1 they asked me to bump up lease start to mid dec, which i thought was fine...just starts early, but i suspect the extra hefty fee is for the rest of dec, thus putting down 1.5 months rent, which of course i dont like. but its written out to the association. so if someone can help me clarify my suspicions, id appreciate it. ... more

Laytoya in my opinion that's not an unreasonable request to inconvenience yourself once a week in the slightest; it might not even be as often as once a week if there are no appointments. Since there is not lease you should start looking for alternative living now. By the time your landlord finds a buyers and go through the closing process you should be long gone and everyone is happy. Good luck. ... more

Hi Consuelorosario,
In Manhattan, right? Generally speaking, yes you can. However, you will most likely have to pay extra security &/or rent up front. Many landlords will not accept bad credit at all while many others will with the extra money security.

My advice is to find an other place. You don,t want to go to the court. Even if is a illegal conversion if you are going to the court, you will be forced to move out . I had a opportunity to see one case like yours. You don,t want to have problems like that. Eviction is one of the worst problem in your credit. It is very bad for your future tenancy. There are plenty of rental apartments in NYC. ... more

Co-ops are always tricky, and each one is different. There have been co-op buildings that approved people with a somewhat similar situation, and some that will deny someone who can be strong financially all around. With your situation, you'll just have to wait and see what will happen. The only thing I can suggest is to make sure all of your financials(besides your credit, obviously) are strong, and make sure you don't have any late payments on anything that shows your a flaky tenant/person.

I hope everything works out for you, but you should always be prepared with a backup apartment that you have a good feeling about, and can get with little to no stress. If you have any questions or need some more advice, don't hesitate to contact me!

Elena Ravich, Esq. answered:
if Dec 2013 is not a typo and you indeed are looking to start your lease a year from now, it is too early to start your search. Rentals are moving very fast and good apartments are taken in a matter of hours or days. I would recommend to start your search 4-6 weeks prior to the lease start date. You should keep in mind that there is a landlord approval process of tenants based on their credit and background check and employment info As a general requirement, 40 times monthly rent annual income is requires, some landlords accept 35 times rent and some ask for x45. Good luck with your search! ... more

What you need is an agent of your own to work with. The reason some agents are showing you one apartment is that they are the listing agent for the landlord. What you need is your own renter's agent who works for you and will take you to multiple rental listings that meet your criteria. ... more

" It is common in all businesses that the level of customer service, is usually based on income generated from that service given; which is fairly unfair to those who need just the same service of selling, buying or renting in New York City.

That's one of the reasons why we came up with ELITE. It is the highest standard level of same service given from a $2000 rental to a $40 Millions sale, and instead of treating the customers differently, we've decided to give them the ELITE service.

Hi Donald!

Here's one option you may consider -

I work in a NYC suburb located in NJ - approximately 17 miles from the city.
Several towns in my area offer the "Mid Town Direct" train right into Penn Station - the commute can average 30-45 min, depending on your stop.

Much will depend on your price range.

I recently rented an elegant 4 BR, 3.5 bth home in Short HIlls, a very high end, desirable town with wonderful schools, shopping, restaurants and boutiques for $6000 (it was walking distance to the train) - there are other homes starting in the $4000 range. There might be some options in neighboring towns starting in the $3500 range.

Towns in my area to consider include (here's a short list):
in addition to Millburn/Short Hills - Summit, Livingston, Madison, Chatham, Montclair, & Morristown, just to mention a few.

By comparison, Manhattan would cost in the $3000- 4000+ range just for a 2 BR/2bth apartment in a doorman building.

Best wishes.......plesse let me know if you'd like to explore the possibilities in my area!
Good luck with your move.

Why don't you look for a charity that will come pick up donated items that are big. Most towns big or small have them and you get a tax deduction for it -- it's a Win-Win for ya.

Keep in mind that some of the rentals are listed by brokers, others by owner; scams do exist therefore always proceed with caution and verify ownership before exchanging any money. Consider working with an agent of your own. ... more
