20 Jul [Tenant Question] Rental property was “accepted” after speaking with owners and providing requested documents. Now they are asking for last years tax returns. [More in comments]
Hey! First and foremost, thank you in advance. I have a friend that is moving to Katy, TX from Los Angeles, CA.
They are a 30 year old couple. Both have great jobs and are my all means respectable members of society. They have proven that they collectively make 10x the rent, he locked in a high paying job in Katy, TX.
From what I understand, he has provided the following per the request of the property owner:
Driver's license, passport, or other proof of residency
Social Security number
They gave their 30 day notice on their house is LA, and now the TX owner is asking for " His last years tax return".
My questions / concerns:
– Is this legal to request?
– How should they respond to the above situation.
– What course of action do they have, or are they SOL?
Does anyone have any insight of suggestions?
