- Discounts: We list apartments for rent on our website based exclusively on information provided to PayLessApartments.com® by Landlords. We endeavor to verify the accuracy of all such listings however due to the quantity of listings we do not warrant the accuracy of such information. Accordingly, the Renter assumes all responsibility for verifying any information pertaining to an apartment published on our website, including but not limited to availability, price, move-in discounts, application and administrative fee waivers and discounts, amenities, location, etc. Discounts on application and administrative fees or similar charges are credited upon the Renter’s qualifying as a lessee and renting the property for which they are applying to rent. Each Landlord will have different criteria, in full compliance with all Federal and local housing discrimination laws, to determine if a renter qualifies to rent the Landlord’s property. The most common criteria is a minimum credit score, minimum verifiable income, a criminal background check, history of evictions or late rental payments. A Landlord may have additional criteria or may not have all of the criteria enumerated. PayLessApartments.com® strongly urges you to inquire about the Landlord’s criteria for qualification BEFORE you pay any fees to apply to rent a property. If you do not qualify for an apartment you will not receive the discount/reimbursement of your application, administration or other fee for which a discount is published on our website.
