Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and happy to assist.
If your lease is expiring and you are in negotiations for renewal, unfortunately, the owner has the right to require that you submit for approval again. The owner may be doing this because it is required in the rules and regulations of the property, or for any other reason, but I would guess it's some requirement of the association that the owner has no control over either. If there is some concern, discuss it with the owner, because it sounds like the owner would love to rent to you into the foreseeable future. He or she may be able to help smooth the way through any potential issues. If you do not have a history of unresolved violations, the process should be relatively seamless.
I hope this helps. If you need additional information or clarification, just let me know and I'll continue to provide assistance. If I have addressed your issue and/or pointed you in a positive direction, please let me know that, as well. Also, please remember to leave a positive rating when prompted, as that is the only way attorneys on this site are credited for the help we provide.
