If an applicant has a criminal record returned, we will use the following Criminal Conviction Review Process:
Owner/Agent will engage in an individualized assessment of the applicant's, or other proposed occupant's, convictions if applicant has satisfied all other criteria (the denial was based solely on one or more convictions) and:
Applicant has submitted supporting documentation prior to the public records search; or
Applicant is denied based on failure to satisfy these criminal criteria and has submitted a written request along with supporting documentation. Supporting documentation may include:
Letter from parole or probation office;
Letter from caseworker, therapist, counselor, etc.;
Certifications of treatments/rehab programs;
Letter from employer, teacher, etc.
Certification of trainings completed;
Proof of employment; and Statement of the applicant.
Statement of the applicant.
Consider relevant individualized evidence of mitigating factors, which may include: the facts or circumstances surrounding the criminal conduct; the age of the convicted person at the time of the conduct; time since the criminal conduct; time since release from incarceration or completion of parole; evidence that the individual has maintained a good tenant history before and/or after the conviction or conduct; and evidence of rehabilitation efforts. Owner/Agent may request additional information and may consider whether there have been multiple convictions as part of this process.
Notify applicant of the results of Owner/Agent's review within a reasonable time after receipt of all required information.
Hold the unit for which the application was received for a reasonable time under all the circumstances to complete the review unless prior to receipt of applicant's written request (if made after denial) the unit was committed to another applicant.
