I own 2 vacation properties in Naples, Fl. The HOA demands

Customer Question
I own 2 vacation properties...
I own 2 vacation properties in Naples, Fl. The HOA demands potential renters to reveal their social security numbers for background check to be approved. Is this a violation of their civil liberties or at least their privacy?
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?
Customer: Florida
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: My renters have objected and are being disapproved after paying me their full rent. I told them to come. I will be fined for non compliance.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: The HOA refuses to put this practice to a vote.

Do I have any recourse?
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 10 months ago

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.

Im in the process of evicting a room renter. Anaheim, Orange
yes... I have known her for years, she was my massage therapist. She and her friend from her church moved in on February 2016. She did not sign a rental agreement, her friend did. I was nonchalant about it because I thought it was no big deal. Then a few weeks after she movedo out, she brough in a cat. I told her that mhy contract specifically says "No Pets". So she said she's moving out. After over a year, she still has not moved out and the smell and condition of her room got worse. I gave her a 30 day notice on June 21, 2017 which I ended up cancelling after we talked. I asked her if I give her another 2 1/2 months if that would be enough time for her to find a place and she said yes and on that day, July12, signed a rental agreement that she will move out on Sept 30. She is still here. So I gave her a 30 day notice.… read more
