A landlord renting a property has rights in selecting a tenant. Tenants also have rights about the factors that can be considered in selection. While most landlord-tenant issues are governed by states and localities, Federal fair housing laws apply to tenant selection. Landlords must apply legal selection standards equally to all applicants. Tenant applications can’t be rejected based on race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, family status, or mental or physical disability. Written rental applications are not required by law, but they give a basis for fair and consistent screening. If a rejected tenant challenges the decision, documentation of a justifiable decision may negate the challenge.
