Are landlords required to give rental history?

Hello - I have been trying to contact an applicant's landlord for 4-5 days now to get his rental history, and have had no response. Are landlords required to respond to this inquiries? thanks

Landlords are not required to respond.  If the landlord is not responding, doesn't that make you wonder, why not?   I used to own a duplex and would not rent to tenants who landlords did not respond.  Another choice you have is to run a police activity report for that address to see the activity at the house.  Make sure you do a background check, credit check ( get the proper paper work signed from the tenant first).  You can join a local Landlord Association, this is a good way to get to know your local landlords.  The good ones have no problem joining these types of groups.  This will also help you become a better landlord.  They normally have alot of discounts and insite to the rental business.
