Is it legal for a landlord to base his/her deposit requirement on the amount of income reported on tenant's tax return? Tenant in apt for +1 year and landlord originally required 1st and last month's rent. When the lease renewed, landlord said tenant could apply one month's prepaid rent to cover current rent. Now, landlord is claiming that because tenant's 1040 does not show income of 3 times the annual rent, tentant cannot apply prepaid rent to current month. Legal?
