Totally agree 2 cents, except I don't tell anyone anything, nor do I explain or answer questions. I also don't discriminate based upon the obvious discrimination issues in society today. Here's a non-scientific rule to follow. Only rent to people you would loan your car to or have over for dinner, and then for Christs sake don't ever ask them over for dinner or loan them your car - no exceptions.
except I don't tell anyone anything, nor do I explain or answer questions....i dont know what that comment is in reference too exactly, but if someone files a fair housing complaint against you best believe you'll have to explain yourself and your criteria to HUD investigators.
I really think your rationale about renting to someone you would only let use your car or have over for dinner, ok good luck with that one if you are in a situation having to explain why decided not to rent to someone who is otherwise qualified.
But hey everyone does things there own way. Good luck.
