Prepaying rent?

Posted by robert on December 18, 1999 at 23:19:41:

I have a question for anyone who is familiar with the policies of landlords or rental management firms in NYC. I
have a bad credit rating(report). However, I am employed and I am able to prepay the rent for an entire year or,
as in the case of a sublet, for the full amount of rent due for the remainder of the lease period. Would a NYC
landlord accept prepayment as an alternative to having a pristine credit report? If so, what are some of the
potential downsides to this arrangement (one downside that I am already aware of is that a landlord might
respond slower to my complaints because he/she would not have to fear my withholding of rent until the
matter is resolved). Any knowledgable information or opinions about this matter would be greatly appreciated.
By the way, the area of Brooklyn from Brooklyn Heights to Park Slope is the area that I am most interested in
moving to.
