In checking an applicant’s references, you learn that he’s been evicted for failure to pay rent at his last two rentals.
Can you deny the application based on your community’s standard screening policy without violating fair housing law?
Yes, you can.
You may reject the application based on information about rental history obtained during a reference check, as long as you apply the same standards to all applicants, regardless of:
• National origin
• Familial status
