With political issues mounting, and a presidential election on the horizon, individuals may start going door to door in your rental community for political reasons.

Some may be campaigning for office, trying to register voters or collecting signatures for a ballot initiative.

This begs the question. Are you as a rental property owner or manager required to let folks carry out these specific political activities on your property?

Well, the answer depends on the policies you already have in place.

If an apartment complex has a blanket no-trespassing or no-soliciting rule, it can be enforced against individuals wanting to deliver election/political communications like those

mentioned above.  It is important to note, however, that this policy must be implemented consistently for all solicitors so that you are not accused of picking and choosing which solicitors are allowed on the property.
