1500 Lexington Associates LLC (located at 1500 Lexington Avenue, NYC) and 1510 Associates LLC (located at 1510 Lexington Avenue, NYC) (“Company”, “Companies”, “we”, “us”) are privately owned, multifamily rental apartment properties located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.
In connection with disseminating information related to these properties and renting current and upcoming vacancy market rate apartments, the Companies developed and maintain two public web sites – www.CarnegieHillPlace.com and www.1510Lex.com.
Prospective renters may visit our Sites without disclosing any personal information.
Prospective renters of apartments can voluntarily make inquiries in person, via phone and/or via the Site(s), for additional information related to a posted apartment available now and/or in the future and/or general questions about the properties. Initially, this information typically includes your name, most convenient contact information (phone number or eMail address), specific apartment interests including size of apartment, monthly rent you are looking to pay, special configuration needs or wishes, how you heard about our properties, etc. This basic information is utilized to be able to get back in touch with you to respond to your initial and any follow up information requests.
If a prospective renter visits our on-site leasing office, which covers both multifamily properties, there is a welcome sheet that is typically completed by the visitor prior to meeting with a leasing consultant. The welcome sheet requests similar information to what is listed above so that a leasing consultant is better able to understand what prospective renter is looking for in a rental apartment at one of the two properties which are located across the street from one another. We also ask about any pets you may have (to see if any issue with the building’s pet-related policies) and how you came to the property – real estate industry web site or application, advertisement, tenant referral, real estate broker, our Sites, walking by in the neighborhood, etc. How you found one or both of our properties is very important to us.
Once a prospective tenant elects to complete and submit a rental application (available via the Sites), we voluntarily collect additional information as part of the apartment application process. This information includes: full/legal name, social security number, birth date, current home address as well as multi-year residential history, contact phone number(s), current occupation/status/employer, employer/business address, multi-year employment history, bank/asset information, source of referral, if any, etc. We request copies of recent paystubs, proof of recent rental payments, copies of bank/investment statement(s), copies of tax returns (if self-employed), copy of accepted offer letter (if newly employed), etc. This information is utilized to complete credit and housing-related background checks for building ownership to be able to make a decision related to your apartment application and your ability to pay the monthly rent. Typically, we look for verifiable annual income equal to at least 40 times the monthly rent for the duration of an apartment lease. In connection with this process, we make use of The Credential Researchers, Ltd., a third party vendor, that specializes in assisting building owners like us, related to qualifying apartment applicants and verifying specific information provided to us/them.
If your apartment application is denied, your personal and private information would remain in our files for up to three years and is then shredded. As required by law, if denied housing, you will be offered information and contacts about options you personally have to challenge our decision not to lease an apartment to you, to submit additional information that you feel we may have overlooked in our data collection or analysis, to correct any mis-information we may have been given or collected about you and/or your application. In additional to speaking with one of our professional leasing consultants, you would also be able to discuss your situation with a representative from The Credential Researchers, who may have influenced our decision. At the time of denial, the source of your credit report as well as relevant contact information for parties involved would be provided to you.
We use information provided to us strictly for our internal purposes and apartment lease-related decision making.
If you would prefer not to submit personal or private information to us via the Internet or our Site(s), you may feel free to visit our on-site leasing office located at 1510 Lexington Avenue, NYC during normal hours of operation. We prefer that any visitors to the leasing office have an appointment so that any waiting time may be minimized. You may also eMail the office at Leasing@CarnegieHillPlace.com or call via phone on 212-348-0500 or fax us at 212-996-8060.
