Can I ask an applicant, one who may rent an apartment in one of my buildings, for a copy of their social security card and drivers license?

Hello,

You are allowed to request that information on the rental application. Also, you may request to verify the documents. I'm assuming that someone with nothing to hide and who wants to rent will permit
you to review the documents. However, I would not keep copies of the documents on file. This may be a question for a landlord/tenant attorney.
