Re: Method of choosing applicants

So have it your way!
Accept the first least qualified tenant applicant of YOUR choosing.
The HUD Fair Housing Regulations, however, only address issues of "discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or disability." Preferences not based in any of the seven (7) protected classes mentioned above are not basis or grounds for violation of the HUD Fair Housing Regulations.
Please do not create a pseudo-discrimination case scenario based upon a business financial decision. However, landlords are free to choose the first qualified tenant with the worst attitude and ill-intentions of their choice without regard for preservation of their property or financial well-being.
