Lower Haight Landlord Won’t Let You In Bed For Less Than $100,000

Tenant rights lawyer Joseph Tobener comments on a landlord’s outrageous demand that his tenants provide proof of a minimum $100,000 income and a FICO score of 725. Tobener says existing tenants of the rent-controlled building are under no obligation to divulge financial information under state or San Francisco law. Additionally, this condition for rental is unreasonable since the median household income in the city us $74,000, and the average credit score about 680.
