Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The HOA can impose and requests, all tenants/renters to undergo a background check. There is nothing wrong or illegal about this and many associations, impose this practice. If the tenants do not want to provide this , they do not have to but the association would have a right to deny them renting, since they failed to cooperate and allow a background check to be done. Now, the alternative would be to see if they would allow a different background check service to be used, which simply relied about date of birth, instead of social security number. This way, the information which they seek and want to know can still be provided and the tenant does not have to give up their social.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
