Senator Pettersen, bill sponsor, presented House Bill 19-1106. The bill prohibits a landlord from charging a rental application fee unless the entire amount of the fee is used to cover the landlord's cost to process a rental application, such as the cost to conduct a personal reference check or to obtain a consumer credit report. Landlords may not charge two or more prospective renters different amounts for applications to rent the same property. Landlords must provide each prospective tenant with written notice of the tenant selection criteria, and the grounds upon which a rental application may be denied, prior to charging an application fee. Finally, this bill requires that a landlord provide a prospective tenant with specified notifications if the landlord rejects or places additional requirements in a rental application (adverse action) after reviewing and evaluating the rental application.
