: I have heard of this practice in other industries. I know there are doctors who won't take a new patient until the check a database of people who have filed malpractice claims. I've never heard of any law that bars this practice.
: In real estate, other than the normal race, sex, religion, ethnicity, and (in NYC only) sexual orientation protections, a landlord has complete discretion in choosing among prospective tenents. I didn't know of an RSA database before your post, but it does make sense. Do you know for a fact that it exists, or are you assuming? If it does exist, I know of no law that would prevent a landlord from not renting an apartment because that tenant is on that type of database
