APPLICATION FORM

Dear Applicant:

Enclosed, please find an application for a one, two or three-bedroom apartment. Please be sure to read the application in its entirety before signing and notarizing these documents. You are advised of the following in connection with this application:

This application is to secure an application number in regards to obtaining an apartment at Riverbay. Please note that there are no apartments available on an immediate basis. Approximately 90 days prior to an apartment becoming available, you will be contacted by a residential sales agent for your payment of the balance of fees outlined on the previous page.

All applicants are subject to credit investigation, which will include a FICO credit score. Riverbay requires a FICO credit score of 650 or greater. Any application with a Fico credit score below these levels will be denied. If you are not sure about your Fico credit score, you are encouraged to obtain your own credit report and FICO score at www.myfico.com prior to paying the additional fees in connection with this application.

In the event you have no credit score because you have not established a credit history, your application will be considered provided you can demonstrate that you have paid other bills on a consistent basis. For this purpose, we will consider gas and electric bills, cable bills, telephone bills, current landlord verification, etc.

All applicants, co-applicants and proposed occupants (age 18 or older) will be subject to criminal investigation. The cost of these investigations is the responsibility of the applicant and must be paid when contacted as indicated on the previous page. Should your application be denied based upon the results of the criminal investigation for you or anyone listed on your application, none of the fees assessed will be refunded as they are NON-REFUNDABLE. Any applicants, co-applicant or proposed occupant with a criminal conviction for producing methamphetamine in the home or who is legally required to be a lifetime registrant on the state sex offender registry will result in the application being denied. If a criminal conviction or arrest is still pending that involved physical violence to persons or property or which affected the health, safety and welfare of others, then Riverbay will make an individualized assessment for each applicant which may include such factors as (a) seriousness of the crime, (b) time elapsed since the offence, (c) age of the person at the time of the crime (d) evidence of the person’s rehabilitation and (e) whether they are an actual danger to their neighbors.

A home visit at your current residence will be conducted by an independent investigative company and a resulting report will be forwarded to Riverbay Corporation. Should this home visit result in denial of your application, all fees paid in connection with the processing of this application are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Riverbay Corporation does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, religion, sex, national origin, age, familial status, disability or socio-economic class.

All applications are accepted for a waiting list only, and are subject to review for eligibility under the rules and regulations established by Riverbay Corporation, with the approval of the commissioner of the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal. Riverbay adheres to New York State Rules and Regulations, section 1727-1.3(d) which states, "Eligible applicants shall be given one right of refusal of an apartment without prejudice to their standing on the waiting list. A second refusal shall result in their removal from the waiting list.”

With regard to apartment selection; applicants will be allowed to specify the section location(s) they are interested in, but cannot limit their selection to a particular building(s). Applicants may also limit the floor(s) they wish to live on to the bottom half or top half of the building, but cannot specify specific floors.

Accordingly, applicants may indicate preferences, for a specific size apartment, a particular area of the complex, or for a higher or lower floor, at the time of their application. However, any changes in preferences after their application is submitted, but prior to an apartment being offered, will result in their application being placed at the bottom of the waiting list which reflects the new preference.
