State Specific Question About: ILLINOIS (IL)

If we have a denial and the applicate disputes it, do we need to wait, or can we go ahead with the next applicant? A denial shouldn't hold up the process.

Hi Sue.. .and you've a common question..

The situation you suggest would not or does not delay your continued search for the best qualified applicant.

I'd searched in 2010 for a clarification of the commonly held method of 1st come gets it'

Part of the reply from HUD regional was;

'Although we strongly recommend that landlords accept the first qualified applicant', fair housing law does not require this.

'Landlords are allowed to adopt whatever'.. 'method of picking a qualified applicant..... (as long as it is not discriminatory)

'Landlords have the liberty of accepting a group of applications' and 'screening' through them for the one they like best.

You denied a tenant and they dispute your denial? --64.197.xx.xx

Why did you deny them? --67.143.xx.x

To whom did they dispute the denial? I don't get it.

Simply tell them to submit their request in writing within 30 days and you will never hear from them again. If your denial was based on a valid, non-discriminatory reason, you have no reason for concern. But, you shouldn't tell them anything because anything you say could be taken out of context and/or (mis)interpreted by an attorney or tenant advocacy group.

Is that like getting turned down for a job application and telling the employer: I'm sorry but I can't accept your refusal to hire me. --64.197.xx.xx

That's why i never deny anyone. I tell them i will call them if they are accepted... for those that keep contacting me. Sorry, another applicant got the place..... watch for the sign, i may have one open next year. --24.245.xx.xx
