Residential Rental Application Requirements

If you are on the search for rental apartment, you will find this "checklist" very useful in your mission:

  2. $500 (no personal checks ) non- refundable application deposit. It is fully refundable only if your application is not approved, if approved, deposit will be applied towards security deposit or broker’s service fee. For all co-op sublets, a full 1-month deposit is required at the time of submitting the application. Posting a deposit does not guarantee acceptance of the application, but apartment will be off the market pending lease execution.
  3. Completed application by all applicants and guarantor.
  4. Copy of all applicants’ government issued photo id.
  5. If self employed or freelancing; Last 2 years’ tax returns and CPA letter verifying income.
