Proposed ID theft rules affect industry.
While most of the provisions are directed toward financial institutions and other traditional creditors, the apartment industry has some compliance obligations, especially when accessing an individual's credit report.
This proposed rule seem to define what reasonable policies firms should have to follow if a firm uses a consumer report to verify a consumer's identity and are notified by a consumer reporting agency of a serious address discrepancy. NAA/NMHC's comments encouraged the FTC to recognize as reasonable policies the resident screening practices currently employed by the apartment industry and discouraged the adoption of stricter standards.
