I would change that to say: NO SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ALLOWED, per federal law. Also, I think landlords seek this information in case they get stiffed on back rent. having the SSN will allow the landlod to more easily track down the deadbeat tenant and collect the back rent. That is not, I think, a proper ground to request someone's SSN, and certainly not how it was done in the case I have, by informing the tenant that all the information (including SSN) is required by the administrative code. Anybody ever get such a notice from their landlord and wanna sue????/ I'm willing to talk about it, might be willing to it on contingency.......thanks
