Terms & Conditions:
The application fee (“Application Fee”) in the amount of seventy-five dollars ($75.00) is a non-refundable Application Fee for processing this application (“Application”) and will not be refunded to you. Upon receipt of this Application and the Application Fee, we will set aside and reserve the apartment (“Apartment”) for you.
By submitting this Application, you agree to enter into a lease ("Lease") for the Apartment under the terms specified in this Application. We may require you to sign the Lease concurrently with your submission of this Application. However, if we put you on a waiting list for an Apartment, you will not be obligated to sign a Lease until we advise you (in-writing, in-person, or by telephone) that an Apartment is available, and you accept the Apartment. You will have 24-hours after you are notified by us to accept or reject the Apartment, which you may do in-writing, in-person or by telephone. If you accept the Apartment, you will have 24-hours to pay all associated fees and you must sign a lease within five (5) days of receiving it or your rights to lease the Apartment will terminate. If you do not timely notify us of your acceptance of the Apartment, we will thereafter have no obligation to lease the Apartment to you.
If, for any reason, we decline this Application, then you will not be refunded the Application Fee. If we approve this Application, we will ask that you execute the Lease (if you have not already done so). If, however, you decide prior to executing the Lease that, notwithstanding this Application, and our approval, you no longer wish to proceed with the Lease, you must so notify us in writing (the "Termination Notice"). To be effective, the Termination Notice must be delivered by you in-writing, in-person or by telephone to a member of our Leasing Department responsible for the building where the Apartment is located. Concurrently with your delivery of the Termination Notice to us, in consideration for us having held the Apartment off the market and reserved the Apartment for you, you agree to pay to us a “Reservation Fee” in an amount equal to the product of (i) the number of days from the date of this Application until we received the Termination Notice; multiplied by (ii) the base rent that would have been payable by you under the Lease for the Apartment (calculated on a per diem basis).
In all events, if you have not executed and returned the Lease to us within five (5) days after receipt of the Lease, we will assume that you are not interested in proceeding, the Apartment will no longer be reserved for you.
By accepting the Application Fee from you, we are not obligated to approve this Application or rent the Apartment to you. Our approval of this Application is contingent upon our receipt of a satisfactory report of your rental history, credit history and other information that we deem necessary.
By signing this Application, you certify that all persons over eighteen years of age who will be occupying the Apartment have completed and provided to us a separate Application for Residency, and that each such occupant of the Apartment will sign the Lease at the time required by us.
You authorize Paulus Development Company, LLC (the “Company”), the authorized managing agent of The Dietz, through our designated agent or employees, to order a “consumer report” (a background report) or “investigative consumer report" on you in connection with your tenant application to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. You also agree that a copy of this form is valid like the signed original. You understand the Company may order a background report under your legal name and any other names you may have used. You also authorize the following agencies and entities to disclose to ADP Screening and Selection Services and its agents (or any background check company used by the Company) all information about or concerning you, as allowed by law, including but not limited to: your past or present Landlords; law enforcement and all other federal, state and local agencies; federal, state and local courts; the military; credit bureaus; testing facilities; motor vehicle records agencies; all other private and public sector repositories of information; and any other person, organization, or agency with any information about or concerning you. The information that can be disclosed to ADP Screening and Selection Services and its agents (or any background check company used by the Company) includes, but is not limited to, information concerning your rental history, credit history, motor vehicle history, criminal history, military service and professional credentials.
The background check company, ADP Screening and Selection Services or a similar background check company, will prepare the background report for the Company. The address and contact information of the background check company is available upon request by the Company.
The background report may contain information concerning your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, mode of living, criminal history, and credit standing. An “investigative consumer report” is a background report that includes information from personal interviews. Information may be obtained from private and public sources and for investigative consumer reports from personal interviews as noted above. You may request more information about the nature and scope of an investigative consumer report, if any, by contacting the Company.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act gives you specific rights in dealing with consumer reporting agencies.
By signing this Application, you certify that all information contained in this Application is true, correct and complete.
