Re: "Application" fees

Posted by MJ on May 16, 2000 at 16:14:40:

Does anyone know a way of fighting the realtors on their outrageous non-refundable "application" fees? It's just too much that on top of the 15%+ broker's fee, you have to hand them upwards of $50 per person to run a credit check and process a piece of paper (when you can get the report yourself for $8).

It's especially infuriating in the case of realtors who accept applications and the fees from several prospective tenants simultaneously; this strikes me as being completely unethical. Is there any limit to these realtors' greed?

Thanks in advance for any tips,
MJ Devaney
