    What's with the rental application fees in Beaumont? So far, 2 out of 3 landlords have asked for a rental application fee when applying. Is this par for the course? What is this fee used for? 1 was 50.00, the other was 75.00. Do I get this fee back if I rent the apartment?

      I'm not from the area, but I have never heard of this before. I'm assuming it is similar to a security deposit, but I would ask the landlord to make sure. I have rented in other places in TX and have never had to do this, but I have had to put down a security deposit. Just check with the landlord and ask what it is for, I'm sure they'll tell you.
