I would say the shadiness in not contacting their current landlord is reason enough, but in all honesty, I don’t think you have to provide a reason at all.

I don’t think you have to give a reason per se.

I would just say that you are sorry but you have another applicant that is a better fit!

The other applicant makes more money and is more flexible. You don’t have to give a reason to the other people, since you aren’t discriminating on race, sex, etc.

That’s actually a super calm rental market. Here, if you aren’t first in line with a checkbook open and your credit report already in hand, forget about it. Places are gone after they’ve been on craigslist for an hour! Wish we lived in your market!

You don’t have to provide a reason.  Just say you guys decided to rent to someone else.  Most people won’t question why you chose someone else over them — especially if they’re actively pursuing a new rental.

I agree with the PPs that I don’t think you have to tell them anything except that you have another applicant who is a better fit.
