Using Rental Criteria to Avoid Violating Fair Housing law

Using Rental Criteria to Avoid Violating Fair Housing law

April is Fair Housing month and a good time to brush up on ways to avoid discrimination claims.

One of the best ways to avoid discrimination claims is to have a list of the criteria you use when

evaluating a tenant. It is better to have objective criteria and use those than to compare people to

each other or use you “gut instinct” to evaluate if someone is qualified to rent from you.

It is natural for owners to want to compare prospects against each other. But BEWARE! Because

of Federal Fair Housing Laws this can get you in trouble. Here is an example:

A landlord puts a sign put in front of her duplex for rent. At 9:00 am Marie shows up with two

children, looks at the property and decides she wants it. While she fills out the application her

children run around the yard and are loud. At 10:00 a nice looking young man, Derek, shows up.

Industry Representatives visit with Utah’s Congressional Delegation

Each March the National Apartment Association holds the largest advocacy training conference

in the rental housing industry in Washington DC. As usual, Utah sent a delegation that attended

meetings, discussed federal legislative and regulatory policies and then visited with members of Utah’s

congressional delegation.

“This year, we were able to visit with both of our U.S. Senators and 3 out of four of the congressional

offices and discuss the issues affecting rental housing,” said Paul Smith, UAA Executive Director. “As

usual, our senators and representatives seem to be on the same page as us that rental housing is

a necessary component of a balanced housing policy and needs to be protected from overzealous

regulation and too much push for homeownership at any price. Living in an apartment or other kind of

rental housing is a legitimate life choice and needs to be an option for all Americans”, he says.”
