To apply for a rental property or request a viewing, please fill out and submit this form. A rental application is required PRIOR to a property showing. Please note that Champaign County Realty charges a $25.00 application fee in order to process your credit report and score and conduct rental history check. This fee must be paid to Champaign County Realty via check, money order or cash and is collected AFTER the applicant has decided they want to rent the property. The fee is NOT required prior to a showing, and a credit report is never pulled until the applicant has decided they would like to rent the property. The appplication fee is NON-REFUNDABLE once paid.
After viewing a property, if you wish to secure the property for you to rent, a non-refundable hold fee is required. This non-refundable hold fee will be used as part of your security deposit after lease signing. If you choose not to rent the property after submitting the hold fee/deposit, this payment is not refundable.
