I filled out this application here: http://www.dawnhomes.com/application.pdf
(see statement about 2/3 of the way down the page)
I paid a $40 check (application fee) and a $645 check (security deposit). I was approved and am scheduled to sign the lease on 9/1.
If I walk away and stop payment on the $645 check, what's my maximum exposure...$645 in small claims court?
My reason for wanting to do this is has nothing to do with the apartment itself.
