Thoughts/Suggestion on Requiring Photo ID's

To protect the leasing professionals against attacks by persons posing as potential residents, it is the policy of many companies and communities across the country to require all prospective residents to present a photo ID before they can be shown an apartment home. They ask for photo ID as a security measure. These policies’s are not in any way designed to identify the race, national origin, gender, disability, religion, or family status of prospective residents.

Certificates of Occupancy

NOTE:  Change the EVERYTHING and IN WRITING from all capitals to italics or underline.
Q: Does a landlord have to show any kind of proof that an apartment is safe and up to code before it can be rented?  Is there any kind of license apartments have to get from inspectors before they can be rented?  If not, how can I tell a place is safe?  After I move in, how do I get a place inspected?
