nope. once you put her down on the application they check her credit and her income. you should have just put yourself down ;-) gotta know the tricks of the trade to live in NYC
what i say do now is, have her build her credit because they will be checking it

ack sorry. I am thinking of a UWS coop I applied to, and they sent me a letter back that they received everything. From Masaryk I havent receieved anything back yet, but I did mail it already last week. the due date is 5/19

Did anyone else enter the lottery for the 1BR M-L co-op in the Columbus Circle area? The ad for that one came out just after the Masaryk towers ad. I'm curious if those letters have also gone out? Would be exciting to have a chance for both! I'm so sad that I've just recently discovered Mitchell-Lama and haven't been trying for years!

I got picked for the ML Lincoln Center lottery. I also sent out that $200 money order and application. That is the building I recevied my confirmation back that they recevied my Money order and application. I confused it with Masaryk. Masaryk hasnt sent me anything yet,
for ML Lincoln Center im in the 200s (waiting list #)
For Masaryk I am in the 40's

Yes there so many ML coops out there. I am on a few lists already. The longest one Ive been on is from 2010, hoping I will get called soon, but its also in a desirable Manhattan neighborhood so who knows when thatll happen. You can find a list of all ML rental and coops in NYC online

I'm not moving without her. Would they have let her move in with me if I had left her off the list?

Dammit, I just looked at the original notice for the opening of the list for Masaryk and I never realized they allow THREE people into a 1BR. I'm at the top of the income limit and I thought 2 people was the max. I guess for those of us making in the 80-90k range, they want 3 people to live there. Oh well, we still qualify for Inwood Terrace

You could have left her off. Just put yourself. and she couldve moved in with you after, theres no way they would know she lives there. she would need another address to use in the mean time while living with you though

Hey NewYorkNewYork99

I got the ML Lincoln Center waiting list notice one week before the Masaryk notice.
The ML list I actually didnt see online at all , which is where I always look. A friend sent it to me and said it was in the daily news.
Sucks because I had come up with $200 for lincoln center then another $200 for the Masaryk
But luckly I had it. Thanks Im surprised I got picked as well.
