This week, readers looked to us for advice on living with a pet in NYC, with an article on balancing a co-op building’s no-pet policy with a buyer who relies on a comfort pet, and a piece on pet fees for renters.
Also of interest: NYC landlords typically want renters that earn 40 to 45 times the monthly rent. In the past, you could put down a larger security deposit, but that’s no longer a legal option. But there are other ways you can get around NYC’s steep income requirements for renting.
