Are your resident screening practices up to date?

January 25, 2024  |  9:30 AM PST  |  Live Webinar

Presented by Karsaz Law attorneys Eric Newmark, Esq. and Amy Leigh, Esq.


In this seminar, Eric and Amy will provide essential information on screening rental applications and criminal backgrounds in 2024.  In the rental housing industry, there are myriad guidelines, laws, and practices that Nevada property management professionals need to be aware of in order to avoid costly legal pitfalls.


The topic of rental application screening has been a widely discussed aspect of the landlord-tenant relationship.  Laws and guidance on the subject span from the federal level (Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s memos on the subject) to the state level (26 states have some form of screening limitation law in place), but there’s still confusion regarding what to do when screening a potential resident’s application.


Join our speakers to learn about the trends, issues, laws, and best practices you need to know when developing and implementing your rental application screening policies.
