Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I’ve been invited for an interview. Who has to come with me?
A: All household members over the age of 18 must be present for the interview.
Q: What do I need to bring to my interview?
A: This will depend on the type of unit that you are interviewing for. You will receive a written listing of all documents needed prior to your interview. You may consult the following link for more information on LIHTC apartments.
Q: Why do you request so much information about my income and other finances?
A: Most of our apartments are Low Income Housing Tax Credit properties. In order to keep rents affordable to families earning below certain incomes, we must ensure that all applicants meet the criteria set by the Federal government, and all applicants must be approved by NYC Housing Development Corporation (HDC) before we may accept your application. All of your personal information is kept strictly confidential.
Q: How long will the process take?
A: Once you provide all required documentation, we typically approve or deny your application within 5-7 business days, sometimes sooner.
Q: Will I be asked to pay anything to get my apartment?
A: You will be charged a $25 application fee per household member over the age of 18. You should bring a money order with you to your interview to cover this expense.
Besides your application fee, you should not give any money to anybody that is affiliated with Foxy Management or with the owner of the building – this is strictly against Foxy Management policy.
Q: My credit isn’t so good. Will I be able to qualify for an apartment?
A: Maybe. We evaluate all facts and circumstances to come to a decision on an applicant, and credit is an important one. Poor credit history is grounds for rejection; lack of credit history is not. You may be rejected if, in the last 5 years, you’ve been subject to foreclosure, repossession, excessive charge-offs or collections, unpaid liens, unpaid court judgments, or similar such things. You may also be rejected if, in the last 2 years, any member of the household has been subject to a bankruptcy or pending bankruptcy. A leasing agent can provide you with more information.
Q: My previous landlord took me to housing court. Will I be able to qualify for an apartment?
A: We may reject an applicant for housing if any household member has been evicted from housing for cause (and not restored to possession) within 4 years of the date of application, subject to certain exceptions. A history of housing court actions within the past 4 years that resulted in a judgment of possession is also grounds for rejection. We may also reject an applicant for housing if the applicant’s prior history shows a pattern of failure to timely and fully pay rent and/or utilities.
Q: I was convicted of a felony. Will I be able to qualify for an apartment?
A: Maybe – it would depend on the facts and circumstances. We may reject an applicant if any household member has been convicted of a felony in the last 10 years, or convicted of any crime involving violence or deception, or any other criminal activity that, if repeated, would likely threaten the health, safety or right to peaceful enjoyment of the property by other residents. A leasing agent can provide you with more information.
Q: I am a registered sex offender. Will I be able to qualify for an apartment?
A: Unfortunately, no. Due to the federal funding of many of our properties, we are prohibited from renting to registered sex offenders.
Q: What will my rent be?
A: Your rent will depend on the program that the apartment was financed with and the legal registered rent with DHCR. Your rent is not based on your income. If you have a Section 8 voucher or other rental subsidy, your out-of-pocket share may, however, be lower. A leasing agent can provide you with more information. You may also consult the rent tables above.
Q: Do you accept one-shot deals, Section 8, or other subsidy programs?
A: Yes. Please note however that you must still meet all other eligibility criteria for an apartment. A leasing agent can provide you with more information.
Q: I have a pet. Can I bring him/her?
A: Some of our properties are pet-friendly. Inquire with our leasing agent during the application process. All pets must be registered and vaccinated. View our Pet Policy.
Q: Will you be inspecting my apartment after I move in?
A: Yes. You will be notified ahead of time each year before we conduct mandatory apartment inspections.
