In the United States more than half of the country’s non-buying population is made up of real estate rentals. Some owners choose to hire a property management company to take care of the complete rental process, but oftentimes real estate agents and individual landlords are the ones tasked with filling vacancies. No matter who is renting a property the fact remains that applicants have rights that are protected by law. The same criteria must be used for all applicants so no arguments can be made alleging discrimination took place. Important questions still need to be answered though about whether the applicant will pay their bills on time, or if they have a past that would make them a risk to the property.
