NAA Alerts Members to Expect Heightened Scrutiny of Fees

The National Apartment Association has alerted members to expect heightened scrutiny of how rent and fees are set, following release of an open letter from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regarding application fees and leasing costs. In the letter, Secretary Marcia Fudge urged housing providers and companies that provide leasing services to adopt policies that promote fairness and transparency in the process. NAA continues to push back on expanded federal intervention in the landlord/tenant relationship and counsels the White House and federal agencies against increased federal involvement in the highly regulated and localized leasing process. Read more.
