So here is the deal and I get more pissed off by the day.

I was moving back to Austin in December. My agent was helping me find a place to rent for 6 months because I only had 2 weeks to find a place and I wasn’t sure exactly where I wanted to live except it had to be in a certain school district.

So my agent finds two houses. The first house I wanted so my agent called and asked if it would be available 12/5. She was told yes.

I submitted my app and $50 and then was told 3 days later it won’t be available until the 10th. 3 valuable days because it’s like 11/27 at this point.

So I asked for my $50 back and that agent has ignored every request. Won’t respond even when I asked nicely.

It is the principle here. I think this is a scam she’s running where she takes a bunch of apps in + $50 and then declines everyone or moves the goalposts.

So there was no need to do a background check or anything because the fucking property wasn’t available. She just flat stole $50.

Now it’s a mission.

I'm gonna spend a lot of mental energy caring about this.


Seems like that.

this is so trivial, let it go.  that $50 was used to cover the cost of a background check.  standard operating procedure.  most likely the owner changed their mind after the fact.  no one's running a scam $50 at a time.

I don't think it's necessarily about the $50 moreso that she is refusing to answer his calls.

This is also true.  Especially ones in Port Arthur, Denton, Orange and Diboll TX in particular.  Geez.

So, the industry is moving towards the "clearing-house" background check thing.  You submit all of your info, get "underwritten", and individual property managers/realtors/landlords can access that information.
