If you use a tenant background search or check tenant credit reports as part of your tenant screening process (and you should!), you also need to supply those tenants who do not qualify to rent your property with a letter declining their rental application.

That rental declination letter needs to:

  • let them know that you obtained information from a Consumer Reporting Agency (and list the name, address, and telephone of that agency)
  • advise them that they have a right to request a copy of their consumer report, free of charge, from that agency within 60 days of the date of the letter
  • notify them they have the right to dispute the accuracy or completeness of any item on their report
