It doesn't cost them $50 either. Most landlords or anyone who has to run credit checks regularly pay a flat rate for a certain time frame for an unlimited amount of credit checks.

Hi rlrl, in this and other threads you've expressed concerns about several issues. Today in another thread you speculated on whether your post was up to par, etc.

Just know that most of us, your fellow posters, are hear to discuss issues such as those that you raise and that most of us are glad to be of assistance.

Just shoot the question, and we'll try to respond as best we know.

Yes the LL does have to pay for a credit report and cannot do it without the written consent. This fee is usually passed of to the applicant. I personally don't pass it on and just eat the cost myself. The credit is very important when you are turning over your property to someone. It costs so much to get new tenants in so you want someone that can pay the rent (and on time) and someone that doesn't have prior evictions, etc.
