Examples Of Acceptable Reasons For Rental Application Denial

Here are some examples of acceptable reasons to deny an applicant rental, which do not violate fair housing laws at the federal, state or local level:

  • The person smokes. 
  • The person wants to keep a pet (not to be confused with a service animal or a comfort animal, both of which are not pets). 
  • The applicant has insufficient income (income is defined broadly and includes more than just a salary from a job) 
  • The person’s income cannot be verified. 
  • The applicant has been arrested and/or charged with a crime. 
  • The person has been convicted of a crime. 
  • The individual has been sued for owing someone money. 
  • The applicant has a money judgment against them. 
  • The person does not have a prior rental history (1st time renters are not protected). 
  • The applicant has a poor rental history. 
  • They do not provide complete answers on the application. 
  • The applicant provided false information on the application. 
  • Prior landlords had negative comments about the applicant and would not rent to them again. 
  • The person has poor or no credit history. 
  • They have only been employed for a short period of time at their current job ( I prefer to see at least 6 months – 1 year of employment at their current job so that I know there is some stability in their source of income). 
  • The individual has filed bankruptcy in the past. 
  • They have a foreclosure on their record.
