Landlord Retracts Outrageous Demands After Letter Goes Viral

Landlord Retracts Outrageous Demands After Letter Goes Viral

Commented May 15, 2014 at 12:27:33 in Business

“So by your thinking, A prospective tenant who either has no credit or poor credit for whatever reason is not going to rent one of your properties? How is that any different from a bank redlining a declining neighborhood, which by the way is illegal.”

Darlene1964 on May 15, 2014 at 13:00:57

“No credit is one thing bad credit is another and it depends on why the bad credit . Old medical bills well thats understandable won't make you car payments and won't pay your credit card bill that I would decline to rent to unless you had a sensible reason. Stuff happens I get that but just screwing people cause you don't to pay well rent somewhere else.And I'm not denying a neighbourhood just an individual who does not understand paying bills or just doesn't care.”

“Not buying it. My credit history is none of a landlords business.”

“How is a landlord supposed to determine if you are a good renter payment wise?Do you think they should have to determine just by looking at you? If that was the case there would never be any rental discrimination cases because I would be allowed to not rent to you because I don't like the tattoos or piercings or a weird haircut.”

“Demanding to see a credit report for anything other than a loan should be illegal. Its not a landlord or insurance companies business.”

“i disagree, and feel it is quite appropriate to check credit reports for potential renters. After they rent, i see no reason...”

Darlene1964 on May 14, 2014 at 12:14:07

“So a landlord shouldn't have the ability to see if you pay on time? If that was the case what would my right as a landlord be? kick you into the street after 24 hours late rent or what? Rent is a long term debt just like a car payment”

“It's a promise to pay 12 monthly installments for housing. If you lose your job, they can't evict you for a month. They sure as heck have the right to get a credit report and financial information on you.

I do agree that if you pay a one-year lease up front and have a security deposit to cover however long an eviction takes, you shouldn't have to go through a credit check.”

Gepids on May 9, 2014 at 15:24:02

“Actually, running a credit report is pretty typical for renters. Property owners need to see if you have the ability to pay the rent, just like a credit card company will run credit. A FICA of 720 and 100k income is a bit much. Many times the ratio is 2.5 time the rental amount. Some places want tax returns if you are self-employed.”
