I have paid the earnest money deposit and credit check fee indicated on this application. The earnest money deposit will be applied to my security deposit or my first month's rent if the Landlord enters into a lease or rental agreement with me. If this Application is approved, and I fail to enter into a lease or rental agreement, the earnest money and any subsequent payments may be retained to compensate the Landlord's costs and damages, subject to the Landords duty to mitigate. If this application is rejected or withdrawn or if no action is taken by the end of the ____ calendar day following receipt of the earnest money, the earnest money and any subsequent payments will be refunded by the end of the next busniness day. The credit report fee is nonrefundable.

My performance under any lease or rental agreement that I may enter into with the Landlord may be reported to such reporting agency.
I acknowledge that the Manager and the agents and employees thereof represent the interests of the Landlord, but they also have a duly to treat all parties fairly and in accordance with fair housing law, and to disclose material adverse facts about the property.
