Default home Check

The home check is very basic and takes 10 minutes - the "inspector" came in took a picture of my family or the ones that were moving to the new apartment. He then took a picture of the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathroom and he was gone. Said it would take a couple of weeks for the entire report to be sent to the management office. I received a call a week later saying they had already received the report and I could come in for additional paperwork.

the background / home check is very expensive we have 3 adults (me, my wife and my daughter because she is 18) and the cost was 554.00.

the things they will really look at
1- your present ability to pay the rent
2- criminal background (please don't start with that's illegal - nobody will admit it yet they all do it)
3- how many people will move into the apartment - don't lie and think I will say its me and they kids and sneak my spouse in later - you may get away with it initially but someone will rat you out in the building - I have only been here 6months and there are plenty of rats (the 2 legged kind)

make sure you have all of your papers in order , taxes, W2, paystubs birth certificates for kids
marriage license etc etc

If you have everything ready - it makes it so much easier on the office staff - in addition bring copies - yes they have a copy machine but if you bring your originals and copies for them you will see how fast they will get you through the appointment.

recently management has started cracking down on the noise makers, people hanging out in the park drinking and the dogs (I am a dog lover and want my dog but there are several owners who have dogs they have screwed it up for everyone). there was a recent incident with the security department and one of the known troublemakers - resulting in his arrest -

also there is still a lot of construction going on but nothing seems to be getting completed
but they finally removed the scaffold shedding from most of the buildings.


In the last month I have noticed 2 people moving in 1 in my own building and 1 in another building - I don't know how many bedrooms or anything like that - I just saw the moving trucks bring stuff in

I have about 65 people ahead of me on the 1-Bedroom list. It has moved very slow since it came out early this year. But, I have patience and a sense of Hope.
To all concerned about their housing sites:
I know these blogs help all those who are very concerned about the conditions in their living sites. I wish to remain as a Pro-Active tenant, once moved in. Tenants have many rights and should speak their concerns always. I am speaking about overall tenant complaints, issues, concerns, and suggestions for improvement:
If you see something--- Say Something! The more tenants that speak up, the better chances that their concerns will be addressed by management. If not, then we go up the chain of command to the Boro Directors Office. Do Not Give Up.

Still nothing . Tomorrow will be 5 weeks exactly and i have yet to hear anything. Maybe since there were a whole bunch of holidays in the last month it slowed the process up. But as soon as I hear something I'll post it here. I'll probably email the complex again if I dont hear anything by Friday.

thanks for sharing, it is helpful, although it is long way to go, i am still waiting.

Thanks for sharing information. Although it is long way to go, maybe more than 10 years, but I will be happy to wait for the chance to come. Wish luck all.
