How Does SOI Affect Landlords?

Landlords continue to have the ability to screen prospective tenants based upon lawful qualification criterion. SOI would make it so a prospective tenant with, for example, social security income would have equal opportunity to rent a property and could not be discriminated against based upon their income source. SOI does not require a tenant to accept lower rent nor would it require a landlord to maintain compliance with state or federal subsidized housing standards.
