To qualify for this apartment, this landlord requires the following:
  • 700 credit or better
  • 40x monthly rent = minimum annual income (the usual formula in NYC) but adjusted for fixed debt
            For example:
           $1500 (monthly rent) x 40 = $60,000/year income required to qualify,           
           $1500 + $200
minimum monthly payments* on student loans, car loans, etc
           $1700 x 40 = $68,000/year
income required to qualify
  • 3-4 month's rent in savings when applying
Guarantors and/or cosigners, extra securities or any other means of overcoming any issues with the above are not considered.  We do work with many landlords in the area, so if this criteria doesn't work for you just let us know so we can find the right landlord for your situation. *your minimum monthly payments for non-revolving debt are shown on your credit reports and may be less than you actually pay, so it's worth checking if you aren't sure.
