In a noble but misguided effort to combat racial discrimination, the City of Seattle passed a series of ordinances forbidding local landlords from choosing their own tenants:

  • A “first in time” ordinance requires landlords to rent to the first financially-qualified tenant who applies.
  • And the “Fair Chance Housing Ordinance” forbids landlords from considering applicants’ criminal histories.

Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF) represents several small-scale landlords who are denied their constitutionally-guaranteed choice to decide who to allow on their private property. [...]

I recently watched a true-to-life episode of “ID” and the program was about a female tenant who was being evicted for non-payment of rent.  The tenant, who had resided in the building for over five years actually had a good relationship with her landlord, even though she constantly failed to pay her rent.  The tenant was upset at her landlord, a woman in her 60’s, for finally starting an eviction process.

The tenant convinced her brother to act as a prospective renter and he scheduled a viewing of another vacancy. After luring the landlord into the empty unit, the female tenant entered the unit and strangled the landlord with a cord from an iron, killing her. [...]

In what must have been one of the low points of her day, a young woman recently knocked on my door to tell me that she was from the San Francisco Tenants Union and wanted to invite me to a “Town Hall” to listen to Dean Preston, a supervisorial candidate talk to tenants about how unfairly they are being treated and how they should demand their rights.

Question One:  We attended your seminar on Tenant Screening at the L.A. Convention Center as we are members of the AOA. Thank you very much for your seminar which gave us highly useful tips to screen probable tenants. I will be glad to use your services for us and for my friends because of your professionalism.

We have a situation now where we received an application from a company to rent our single family house in Long Beach. We heard in your talk that when renting to a company, be careful because there are some risks involved. Can you please give us clues as to what we need to look for and what we need to avoid from corporate tenants in renting our property. We appreciate your assistance in this matter. Thanks a lot.
