Whatever prospects put on their application, should be who gets paid.

Per the contract with ApartmentList you have to pay them. Doesn’t matter what the realtor says if apartment list can prove they send the person, then you are obligated to pay them

The procurement came from apartmentlist first. They get the referral. If a Realtor calls yelling at you, they need to refer back to our code of ethics.

He didn't do anything. Tell him you don't work with realtors or "locators" and if you didn't have a prior agreement stating so, like you probably do with apartment list, then he needs to kick rocks.

I wouldn’t pay it, the realtor can take it up with the applicant. You have the documentation.

I would use whatever the applicant listed as their referral source.

I'm a licensed real estate agent in Texas. I have had the Apartment List issue arise numerous times. When people start searching for an apartment they obviously start their search on the internet. They may visit numerous apartment websites and after becoming frustrated with the misinformation online they contact a locator for assistance. The locator spends time qualifying the client to make sure they meet apartment's rental criteria. We gather accurate information that is time sensitive on pricing, availability and specials. We also find out floor level, view, extra fees over rent, etc. Locators may also offer resources to school ratings, crime statistics, and any other pertinent info that could help our client make a decision on where to apply. We also book tours or escort the client on tours. If the locator provided these services and their client leases they would have VALID claim they are the procuring cause of their client leasing at your community. Even if it is discovered they visited "Apartment List" prior to working with the locator. If the client was "sold" on your community just by viewing your listing on the Apartment List website then they would have applied and never contacted a locator.
