Q: What utilities are included in the rent?
A: Heat and hot water are included in the price of rent. You will receive a monthly bill from Con Edison for electricity and gas. Our leasing department will set up your ConEdison account for you at your lease signing. Tenants are responsible for setting up their own phone, internet and cable service, however, we will provide incoming tenants with information on how to set up cable and internet services in their apartment. Satellite television and Verizon FiOS are currently not available in our buildings.
   
Q: What are the salary/yearly income requirements for apartment applicants?
A: Typically we require that the applicant's annual earnings are 40 times the monthly rent. We will accept guarantors that earn at least 80 times the monthly rent. In a roommate situation, incomes can be combined to meet the requirement.

All applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Applicants may be considered if they can demonstrate other sources of income or assets, or if they provide an additional security deposit. Please download our application to learn more about applying for an apartment.

   
Q: How do I schedule an appointment to view an occupied apartment?
A: Please call the leasing department at (212) 570-2400 x 2 to make an appointment or to ask questions about our properties. Eberhart Brothers is unable to accept viewing appointments made by e-mail. We are also unable to make same-day appointments for occupied apartments as we must give our current tenants 24-hour's notice. You may want to ask about being added to a pre-existing appointment, if there is one.
   
Q: Do you offer short-term or long-term leases?
A: Our apartments are only available for one-year leases, however most tenants receive a renewal offer.
   
Q: Is it possible to place an apartment on hold?
A: We are unable to hold apartments for applicants. If you decide you would like an apartment, you should complete the rental application form and submit the $100 application fee.
   
Q: I am a foreigner residing in New York on a work visa. Do I qualify to rent an apartment?
A: We often accept non-citizen tenants with an additional security payment or some other form of security (i.e. a U.S. guarantor). Non-citizen applicants are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Our Leasing department is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our requirements.
   
Q: I am a student - can I rent an apartment?
A: We have many wonderful tenants that are students! We typically accept students with a U.S. guarantor and/or additional security deposit.
   
Q: I received a broker's listing for one of your apartments, but the information provided is different than on the Eberhart Brothers' web site.
A: Unfortunately we cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information that is not published on our web site or by our staff. We permit brokers to use our photos to promote apartments, but we require them to keep listing information as current as possible.
   
Q: Are there laundry machines in your buildings?
A: All of our properties are within steps of local laundry services, however our buildings do not have public laundry machines. Most of our penthouse apartments, though, have a washer-dryer in the unit, which is indicated on the listing. 370 Central Park West has a laundry room in the building.
   
Q: Are pets allowed?
A: We allow cats, but do not allow dogs in our buildings.
   
Q: Do your buildings have doormen?
A: Our buildings do not have doormen, with the exception of 370 Central Park West. All of our buildings, however, have locking double entryways, and many also have video intercom units.
   
Q: Are there elevators in the buildings?
A: The majority of our buildings are pre-war walk-up buildings. However, 92 Grove Street and 370 Central Park West have elevators.
   
Q: Can additional walls be built?
A: We do not allow conversions, but tenants are free to creatively equip their apartments according to their lifestyles without making any structural changes (i.e., curtains, screens, etc.).
