I understand that you need all sorts of documentation when renting an apartment in NY, including names, numbers etc of former landlords. My husband and I have never rented before, but we do own a property in London, which we will be keeping. Will mortgage documents be of any use in this situation?

Also, do landlords really ask to see your tax returns? (I am getting this info of what is needed from a well known real estate agent website). I will have my US ones, but my husband will only have UK payslips.

We have no US history, as it were, because even though I am a US citizen, I was born and have always lived over here in London. Will having proof of money in the bank help us? I guess that by the time we move we will have about $40-50K in savings.

Thanks for any advice.

Sometimes having a year's rent in escrow will help. But not often.

Take a look at this:http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/20/re...te&oref=slogin
