    Speak Up! - View Question #410

    printer friendly version

    Question: Can an owner/manager of a trailer park deny a tenant a rental space or unit because of a felony conviction, even if the person has served his time?

    Answer: Yes. Fair housing law requires that landlords not discriminate against prospective tenants based on race, gender, religion, national origin, handicap or age. Criminal history is not included in the Fair Housing Act. So, if the landlord applies the same application standards to all prospective tenants and it is the trailer park's consistant practice to deny space rentals to convicted felons, then they are allowed to control whether they rent to people with felony histories.

    No Offense, but you have to understand that there are consequences to your actions (when you were younger). Hopefully someone will understand your plight, but a felony is a serious thing to a lot of law abiding people. Just because you were younger doesn't make it go away.
