I reside and also lease out a house in a FL subdivision with an HOA. Recently the board decided to add a provision to the bylaws requiring all adult tenants to have a yearly background check followed by approval of the rental committee upon lease renewal for a $50 per person fee. (IMO, yearly background checks of longtime tenants is overkill and should only be required once, but, that is another argument)...
I printed off the Rental Application for my tenant to fill out and I'm not happy with the amount of info they are requesting such as Rental Rate, Gross Monthly Pay from both present and a previous employer, and if tenant ever filed Bankruptcy.
Since the reason given to me was that they are trying to make our subdivision safer by excluding criminals and sex offenders, it doesn't seem necessary for the HOA to know the above stated info.
Does anybody know if it is legal in FL for an HOA to require this particular information in order to lease within a subdivision.
