Re: Rental Application Fees by Garry on July 28, 2018 @01:05

You have a legally binding contract here, even if part of it is written, and part of it is oral. You have an offer (the written app.), an acceptance (you accepting their app. and telling them you will run it), and money changed hands (the fee of $35 ). An applicant has a reasonable expectation that you will run their app, and either approve, or deny them, within , say, 1 week from them turning in their app. (they paid you to do something for them) If you are truly an HONEST LL, you will return the fee to them, saying the 1st person who turned in their app, qualified, so you did not run any other apps.

Now, obviously, you could just call all the other applicants up, and tell them you ran their app, and they didn't qualify. And no one is going to know if you did or didn't run their app. EXCEPT YOU! Those applicants kissed their $35 goodby forever when you took their app. This is REALLY all about how it makes YOU FEEL INSIDE. Are you as HONEST as the day is long, or do you sometimes tell "little white lies" to get you thru life. Regardless of what any of us say to you on this forum, ONLY YOU can truly answer your own question.
