  • Property Management Q & A - Spring 2017

    Summary:

    Question: We manage a 150 unit complex in South Seattle. I have a tenant that wants to move his wife and child into the apartment he shares with a roommate. Their payment history is terrible. Due to the poor payment history, I don't want to allow any lease changes. Making this even more complicated, he disclosed to me that his wife was just released from parole in Texas. Does the fact that he disclosed this tie my hands to taking the application for his wife? Due to the recent HUD guidance, I am concerned about not letting her apply due to the criminal aspect. Could I tell him if he has clean rent and utility payments for 6 straight months I'll at least accept her application?
