Can a condo association charge potential tenants $100.00 fee to conduct a background check? Isn't the condo "owner" supposed to be the one who does that? And does the association have the right to turn down a potential tenant?Hello d:
Yes. No. Yes.
I say that, because a condo association CAN legally do those things, but it must be authorized in their by-laws. Now, I don't know if THIS HOA is following the rules or making them up as they go along.
You can certainly ASK them to show you the rules. If they denied your application, and it looks like they did, and there's NO rule that authorizes them to charge you, you can sue them for your $100.
