: About five weeks ago I applied for an apartment in a brand new building in New York City. At that time I was told that I would have an answer in three days and that the apartment would be taken off the market and held for me. Since then, I have placed numerous calls, asking about the status of my application. I keep hearing that they do not have an answer yet because they "are extremely busy." It has been five weeks. They have misplaced my documents many times (one time complaining to me that the apartment has been off the market for me and that it was not fair to them because of my "incomplete" application) and I have replaced these documents. The first approval did come through from the credit check agency that the leasing company uses but they are now telling me that the management has to approve it also. Like I said, this has taken five weeks already. I have supplied them with tax returns, after which, they wanted a letter from the accountant stating that he did, indeed, fill out the returns. Then they wanted a phone call from the accountant, verbally confirming the same thing. They have received confirmations from all bank accounts, etc. This apartment is in the $2,000 range and I have provided more than sufficient proof of an annual income exceeding one million dollars per year in addition to a good credit report. So, what is the problem? This is not a co-op building, just a regular apartment building.

A million dollars a year is obviously more income than is required for a $2000 apartment. Their actions make no sense at all and suggests they have some kind of fundamental problem with your application--or are mind-boggling incompetent.
