Help for apartment application
Hi, here are some questions about my apt. application.
We submitted an apt. application in July, and it was approved then. Everything went well. It was actually a transfer from one building to another. The new one is bigger than the old one. Everything went well until yesterday.
The manger wrote us a "deny" letter, saying that our application was denied for the following reasons: 1, our incomes do not meet the requirement. 2, our housekeeping right now is poor. 3, new people move in, but without notifying Leasing Office.
For the first reason, it is funny they approved the application a couple of months ago, without saying anything about income problem. We even said we'd happy to provide more paper documents if you needed. They said no, and if they needed they would let us know. But the second day, the application was approved already. Additionally, I know some other people already signed the lease with them, their incomes even less than us, but they still got approved and signed the lease.
For the second reason, as soon as we got the notice from them, we have cleaned up the apt. totally. Since we thought we might move the next month, we have bought some furniture. All were in the living room. Also, our roommates moved out last month. Everything was in a mess. But that did not mean our housekeeing is always like this. We did try to remedy this mistake immediately, however.
For the third reason, our roommates told us they will move out just ONE day before before they decided it. They said they will sublet the rooms until the lease ended in Oct. They left us no choice but accepted the new roommates. And we thought they might help these new guys to get all paper works/check in procedures done. But now we know they did not. And it became a reason to deny our new application.
I might say there are sth that we may not good, but at least the manger should give us a chance to explain, or a warning is more acceptable, rather than a "deny" letter. She even did not want to listen to us... we felt so disappointed.
I hope you can provide some suggestions for us. Thanks a lot!
