Governor Newsom Signs Bill to Standardize Reusable Screening Reports for Rental Applications

(SACRAMENTO, CA) – Renters in California often have to pay an application fee ranging from $25 to $55 per adult for credit checks, employment verifications and criminal background reports each time they apply to lease an apartment or home. These fees can add up to several hundreds of dollars before a prospective tenant even gets approved to move into a new residence.
