Unable to process application without fee. Put in "unpaid app fee pile" (circular file) --144.250.xx.xx

Sounds reasonable fee. Maybe make it clearer that the fee must be included. Like add a cover sheet with big bold letters. I have added it where they sign. Perhaps they think they will settle up with you later when they get approved. But how can they get approved without the fee? They don't think about that. More like don't approve us and you MrLL are out the fee. --99.203.xx.xx

Back when I used to collect paper apps I'd have the same problem. Waste of time. So now I use a third party processor to handle my apps. No fee = no application. I never even hear about it.

Unable to process the application without the fee. If you would like to pay the fee, I can move forward with processing. Otherwise, I am unable to approve at this time. --72.209.xxx.xxx

I send them a digital invoice for $30. I charge the same.

I don't review the app until it's paid. --174.201.xx.xxx

My application informs the applicants: "Failure to pay the application fee suggests you are broke and would be unreliable about paying rent". A few still forget to pay their fee, but not many. --107.141.xx.xxx

Yup - no fee paid - no app reviewed. I mean, you "could" look at it but you can't go move past that without it (assuming you perform credit and background checks ad that's your cost/ fee for it).

I have one now that they texted me a pic of the application ok thanks. What would you like me to do with this?? --69.201.xx.xxx

I am at 40 and going higher after the convention, I meet them in person to be sure it is legible, that is when I collect, no pay - no process. I don't throw them out instantly, I use them to wipe window cleaner off. --76.188.xxx.xx

I'm at 25 for low end places, 30 for high end places

I disagree with those using electronic apps.

I want to see how thorough an applicant is and how they're handwriting is. Been doing this so long I can weed out the junkers about 90% of the time just from the presentation of the completed app.

If they don't have the fee we tell them

we will accept the app but cannot process it until the fee is paid. --209.221.xxx.xxx

had a guy a while ago whose application was FILTHY - dirty, greasy, etc. He worked in a garage. I figured he wasn't much of a hand washer so I didn't want that grime on my door jabs, bathroom, etc. --72.70.xxx.xx

No confusion because I ask for 5.00 upfront to take an app and 25.00 when when they bring it back.

Cash only --99.203.xx.xx

Jimmy,

Make certain paying the fee is a requirement in your written criteria.

And make the payment process easy and seamless - attach cash, money order, PayPal...I want to be the easiest place to apply. Every step will lose good people.

I see landlords who make applying difficult.
