Boston Real Estate for Sale

I just read an article from a NY real estate website that can easily be applied to Beacon Hill condo renters.

The article was about how landlords aren’t crazy about having a co-signer on your lease who lives out of state, so if you need a guarantor in order to qualify to rent an apartment.

“New York landlords don’t like out of state co-signers for legal reasons,” explains Jeffrey Geller, vice chairman and chief operating officer of Insurent (a Brick sponsor). “It is more difficult to serve out of state co-signers, and they also need to hire new attorneys in other states.”

From my experience, like NYC, Beacon Hill condo landlords who will only accept co-signers within the area. This can pose a significant challenge to Beacon Hill condo renters who need a guarantor to qualify for a rental and whose family lives elsewhere.

If you don’t meet the income qualifications to rent (usually 40 times the monthly rent) and don’t have any family or friends living in-state who could serve as a guarantor, you have a few other options.

“The most common reason landlords require a guarantor is because of insufficient income,” says Dennis Hughes, a broker with Corcoran. “If this is the case, prospective tenants should, if possible, offer additional security, or offer prepaid rent of several months or more—even up to a year.”

For Beacon Hill condo renters who don’t have that amount of cash handy, they or their would-be co-signers can opt to use a service like Insurent, which will act as their guarantor for a fee calculated as a percentage of a month’s rent.
