What I found in Colorado law is that is most important to treat everyone the same. That means you do not ask nor do you use the following as screening. Race or Color, national Origin, Religion, Sex, Familial Status or handicap / Disability (more). The above mentioned should NOT be used in no way to determine if a tenant is qualified.
What you should use is Income, credit score, back ground (this covers things like crime, UD's, bankruptcy, rental history ect.) Also how they followed your process.
As long as you stay very very far away from asking anything that would fall into the category of discriminating then you are going to be okay. Be fair, treat every one the same. In doing this if someone tries to say you discriminated because they fell into one of the following protected groups then you will be fine.
