If you have not yet registered for Travtus, please contact your site office and provide your contact information.

The following items constitute an “emergency” and should be called in immediately to receive service:

  • No heat in the winter
  • No hot water
  • Broken or frozen water pipe
  • Water leak and/or roof leak (major – more than a minor drip).
  • Gas leaks (contact ConEdison 1-800-75-Coned (1-800-752-6633) immediately)
  • Electrical outage may be considered an emergency but only if there is no electricity throughout the unit
  • Any other condition which affects life, safety or is necessary to preserve the condition of the apartment. We also have a more complete list, including what is NOT considered an emergency (AC not working is one of them).

Move In Procedures

Certificate of Insurance is only required for move-ins if using a moving company.

No, dogs are not allowed.

Your neighbor has a dog because the prior owner allowed it. If a tenant had a dog when we took ownership of the building, those tenants are allowed to keep their dog, no additional or replacement dogs are permitted.

Renting an Apartment

Having the following paperwork ready can help accelerate the rental of an apartment. When applying for an apartment with Nelson Management we will typically ask each applicant to furnish the following supporting documents:

  • Employment verification letter on company letterhead stating position, salary and bonus, if any. If you are starting a new job, bring your offer letter.
  • 4 most recent pay stubs, if applicable
  • Copy of your 2 most recent tax returns
  • Last 12 months cancelled rent checks
  • Photo identification (i.e. driver’s license)

Here at Nelson Management we review credit, income and assets when evaluating a prospective tenant. We perform a full credit/background check in which we require tenants to have a clean report, no landlord/tenant litigation and no delinquencies. We require applicants to demonstrate income of approximately 40 to 50 times the monthly rent.

Usually 2-3 days. Having your paperwork ready helps the process along faster.

We require 1 month rent and 1 month security due at lease signing in the form of separate certified checks or money order. No personal checks will be accepted for a lease signing.

For HUD Section 8 Buildings all inquiries can be made at our main office listed on our contact page.
