1. Brokers and landlords must protect themselves from unsatisfactory tenants, which is why the tenant screening process is necessary. Discriminating based on objective criteria means that the landlord is not discriminating based on any of the protected classes.

They must have good credit, or reasonable credit, and must not have a criminal background that could be negative to the community. 3. They must have an excellent rental history.

1. Federal law prohibits discrimination in the rental, sale, advertising and financing of housing on the basis of your race, color, religion, gender, national origin, family status, i.e., pregnancy or having custody of a child under age 18 or disability.
