Gratuities
If you live in an apartment building with a doorman, concierge, janitor or other staff members, remember that they expect tips at Christmas time. You'd be wise to pay them to ensure consistent service. Find out what other long-term tenants give them.

Key money and bribery is an unfortunate fact of life in some apartment rentals, especially if a broker is not involved and apartments are hard to find in the locality. An apartment superintendent or the on-site rental agent in an apartment complex may be more inclined to give a desirable apartment to you if you give him a small gift. Such bribes are not always expected. You'll have to use your own judgment according to the situation.
