You’ve got that “uneasy” feeling; now it’s gone, gone, gone…

To meet fair housing  standards, landlords must consistently apply the same screening criteria to all?  The King County Office of Civil Rights explains that landlords must develop a, “consistent and sound screening policy that measures a potential resident’s willingness and
ability to pay rent.”  This policy must include quantifiable, pre-determined criteria, which usually includes the following:

  • Credit
  • Previous Tenancies (or mortgage history)
  • Income to Housing Cost Ratio
  • Criminal Background & Identification Checks

Pre-determined criteria –that means in writing – before the listing is marketed!!
