Mr. Walny Valdez is one of the most Professional , Reliable and most Humble person I have ever had the pleasure to meet. The effort in helping me find an apartment was amazing.

If your looking for an agent that will try their hardest in everyway to accommodate your needs I would very highly recommend Mr. Walny Valdez. I was 100% satisfied. Mr. Walny Valdez made my experience of finding an apartment reassuring and stress free. Thank you Mr. Valdez for everything you've done it will be forever greatly appreciated.
I simply cannot give enough positive feedback about our amazing experience working with Walney Valdez. Only a few days after losing out on a place my fiance and I both liked, but found we had been misinformed about qualifying details... We found an ad that seemed too good to be true, and reached out immediately. Walney took my name and number, and just as promised he called me back within minutes to discuss the apartment. As we were actively looking and booking viewings, we'd been making appointments constantly and decided this place was too good to pass up...

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I combine my income with my spouse/partner/roommate/housemate?
Generally, yes, you can combine your income as most landlords apply the 40x rent rule to gross household income. One caveat is that landlords typically limit the number of leaseholders, so if you have multiple roommates or a large family, you may not be able to use everyone's combined income. Finally, a small percentage of landlords will not let you combine your income to qualify, but this is relatively rare.
Can I prepay the lease in full if I don't meet the landlord's income requirements?
Yes, in some instances, you can pay your lease upfront if you don't otherwise qualify. Most buildings, however, are rent-stabilized and cannot legally accept upfront payment. In these cases, you can still rent in those buildings by using a NYC guarantor service like Insurent or The Guarantors.
I do not currently meet the income requirements for the building/am unemployed/relocating, but have a signed offer letter with which I will. Will the landlord accept this?
It depends, and you should ask the landlord as they will likely consider this on a case-by-case basis, but assuming your job offer is guaranteed and will start before or around the same time as your new lease would you'll probably be fine.
Is the apartment application fee refunded if I don't get approved?
The apartment application fee is non-refundable pretty much all the time. Luckily the newly passed Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 caps rental application fees at $20.
How long is the application process?
It depends, the application process will usually take between 2 to 5 business days or more.
Is there a standard NYC rental application form I can use to apply to multiple buildings?
Unfortunately, no, there isn't, although if you're applying to multiple buildings owned by the same landlord, you should be okay with just one application. Otherwise, you'll need to pay and fill out separate applications for each building you wish to apply at. One way to try and mitigate rental application fees is to ask your agent for a refund. Most agents will be willing to offer a rebate assuming you sign with them as they'd rather you not miss out on a place because you're worried about paying multiple application fees.
