Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act; definition of rental application. Adds a definition of “rental application,” which means the written application or similar document used by a landlord to determine if a prospective tenant is qualified to become a tenant of a dwelling unit. The bill also authorizes a landlord to charge an application fee and to request a prospective tenant to provide information that will enable the landlord to make such determination. The landlord may photocopy each applicant’s driver’s license or other similar photo identification, containing either the applicant’s social security number or control number issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles pursuant to 46.2-342. The landlord may require that each applicant provide a social security number issued by the Social Security Administration or an individual taxpayer identification number issued by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, for the purpose of determining whether each applicant is eligible to become a tenant in the landlord’s dwelling unit.
