Thanks for your response.
To answer your question, he does not have a room mate. His girlfriend was staying upstairs quite often and I had to remind him that she was not on the lease and if she wants to move upstairs than the rent will increase. Originally I lowered the rent because I knew he was going to take care of the place and I wouldn’t have to worry about someone destroying my property. So if his girlfriend was to move upstairs, than he/she will be paying me the originay amount that it was advertised for. Another income coming in as opposed to just one (him).
As far as discriminating.I usually ask how many will be residing in the apartment? I set the appointment up, no show. Or when they find out that the landlord lives down stairs, they quickly loose interest.
