We do not charge an application fee, but a credit check fee is required to submit your application.
This fee is a direct, 3rd party cost of reviewing your credit and/or criminal history. We are unable to accept credit reports directly from rental applicants to ensure the integrity and thoroughness of our application review process, which includes both identity verification and review of criminal history.
The fee that we charge at the time of application is a temporary “hold” on your credit or debit card that will only be charged at the time that we process your application.
However, if you decide to withdraw your application, then you should immediately notify email@example.com because the credit check fee is non-refundable once we begin processing your application.
