Why do I have to pay to apply to rent from you?

You charge me to apply?

Sometimes we are asked why we charge to accept an application.  Most Landlords and Property Management Companies charge a fee with the application before they will consider a tenancy.  This is simply because we are charged fees to verify the information you provide on the application and to run background and credit checks.  So simply, it costs us money and we pass along the cost.  Further we are charged for each adult applicant that we have to check out. That is why our charge is per adult that will be living in the rental unit.  At Anchor Group this isn’t a profit center.  We don’t make money on this fee.
