Tenant Screening Intake Questionnaire

Friday, March 31, 2023

Parts of the Eviction Record Sealing Authority and Fairness in Renting Amendment Act of 2022 (“Act”), D.C. Code § 42-3505.10, established a number of new requirements for District housing providers. Before filling out this complaint form, prospective complainants should review more information about this new law located at Examples of the new requirements include: (1) prohibition against charging excessive application fees and using certain information, like evictions that are more than three years old as the basis for taking adverse actions, like denying a housing application; (2) requiring a refund of application fees in certain circumstances; (3) and requiring a notice of costs, eligibility criteria, and prospective tenant rights.

Complete this form ONLY if you believe a housing provider has violated the tenant screening requirements under the Act, like the examples above. If you believe you have been discriminated on a protected basis, please use OHR’s Human Rights Act – Housing Form. All fields are required unless otherwise indicated.
