Event Details

Description: Following HUD Guidelines, Washington Attorney General’s office prohibits landlords from having any blanket bans on applicants based on criminal history. Instead, they must assess each individual and only deny tenancy with a solid business case. Attorney and RHAWA Legislative Committee Chair, Christopher Cutting will review what to consider and what might qualify as valid business case for denial. Additional restrictions in the City of Seattle will also be discussed.
