A newly introduced bill, in February, would prohibit landlords from using credit reports while screening prospective tenants. AB 2527 by Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva, D-Fullerton, would also ban property owners from asking about anything that would be included in a report, such as payment history or evictions.

This bill would, among other things, prohibit a person from using a consumer credit report for a purpose related to the hiring of a dwelling unit or requiring an applicant or tenant to answer a question about the contents of a consumer credit report or the information contained therein for a purpose related to the hiring of a dwelling unit, except if the person is required to do so under state or federal law, as prescribed.
