Where do you live? In New York, if only one person signs a lease, that person has a legal right to have immediate family, one roommate, plus the dependent children of the roommate live in the apartment. Most leases allow immediate family to live in the apartment.
I would ignore the manager, not fill out the application, and not pay the fee.
: My [then] future wife put our apartment in her name and paid
: a $25 application and credit check fee, which is said to be non-refundable.
: Within two weeks we were married and the manager wants me to do an
: application also. The application asks for banks, account numbers, balance,
: credit cards, automobiles and the insurance company. This is excessive.
: Do I have to pay this fee and file an application when the lease is in my
: wife's name? What is the point if I check out bad or good?
: Thank you MATT
