You could offer that to a landlord, but WHY? Is there some overriding reason to pay top dollar
for an apartment in Park slope?....

Like you can WALK to work?....... or a 5 minute subway ride?

There are plenty of other places to pay less the $1000 month and still be commuting
distance to manhattan...

Why do you have BAD credit anyway? Not paying off your bills?

Pay them off...get 2 secured credit cards and find a CHEAP place to live!


: 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.
