Renting in New York City: Landlords Fighting Back

New York City Rental Market:


Renting an apartment in New York City is not an easy task.  My first time renters always have a hard time understanding why they have to provide so much information just to rent an apartment.  A typical rental application requires an employment letter on company letterhead, a couple months of bank statements, credit report, and more.  

The prospective renter has usually been able to go on various websites and read reviews of the building's management.  From my experience, it only takes one upset person to write a number of terrible reviews about whatever qualm they have or had with that building.  Now it appears that the landlords have a website to check the backgrounds of their prospective tentants, www.DoNotRentTo.com.   The website will provide information concerning:

  • Late payments
  • Non-payment of Rent
  • Theft
  • Refusal to vacate premises
  • Or, other issues the landlord had with the tenant

 "This site is driven by landlords supplying information regarding their experiences with tenants."

 That is the most interesting part of this site to me, I would assume a thorough credit and background check would find any evictions, criminal misconduct, history of poor credit, but it would be the specific comments that would make things interesting.  Is there a difference between a tenant saying that the building's super and doorman are lazy and a landlord saying that a particular tenant will complain about their neighbors and that their dog barks all day long while they are away at work?
