: Just one thought regarding the request for a social security number. It is true it does not appear to be required by this section of the code. However, isn't a social security number required to avoid backup withholding of interest on the security deposit? I gave my SS# to my landlord on that understanding. I am not sure what else he could do with the info.
Yeah, I made that mistake too: should have insisted on giving the SS# directly to the bank... He can get your credit report illegally and other mischief, like report you as a 'bad tenant' to those landlord databses online.
