Question from reader: Is it ok for landlords to ask “How much are you willing to pay?”

A question was asked from a reader whether it is ok for landlords to ask “How much are you willing to pay?”

Legally, There is nothing in the Residential Tenancy Act (RTA) that precludes the tenant indicating what they would be willing to pay for a rental property.

Landlords cannot discriminate tenants but there is nothing wrong with renting to a person who is willing to pay more. This is just basic demand and supply market forces.

In the same way a real estate agent can ask a prospective buyer how much are you willing to pay.

What do you think?
