I would say "IT DEPENDS".

How much time did you spend screening the application - checking references making phone calls, driving by their current home, etc. - whether you paid for a credit report or not?

Most management companies NEVER return nonrefundable application fees.
It's not a matter of being honest or not. It is a matter of if they want to apply and be considered, there is a nonrefundable fee. Period.

The background/credit check has them confirm so that they are fully aware that they are getting "checked out".
Sometimes applicants are so blatant that you know if they're going to be good or bad.
