We have been toying around with what things we require from prospective tenants as a condition to rent. We started out with a simple policy requiring photo ID, but over time we have noticed a few trends.
I looked at every auctioned tenant, and every incident report (i.e. sleeping in unit, etc.) filed in the last 7 years; I realized that 9 out of 10 of those tenants only had a state issued ID card. So I've been thinking about requiring a valid drivers license is for rental.
I'm curious what others have experienced, and what facilities require for rental? We can require pretty much anything as a condition of rental, provided it is applied to everyone, and doesn't violate protected class laws.... where is the balance between protecting you facility, and losing customers?
I know of some facilities that require social security numbers, but with my customer demographic it would be committing suicide to require that. I would also keep in mind occupancy %'s since a "full" facility can afford to be more picky then one currently in Lease up.
SO, anyone want to chime in with their requirements?
