Renting to a sex offender
H always asks me to check into people wanting to rent our apartments, but BIL does not and this time BIL brought in a "great candidate" who turned out to be a serious level three sex offender. SO is now on an 18 month lease, while the girl in the adjacent apartment is very concerned and we are faced with the legal machinations of getting rid of the SO. I realize he has to live somewhere after paying what appears to be a 12 year debt to society, but if the other tenant leaves out of fear, it would be our problem, not to mention the difficulty of renting an apartment when you have to disclose that a convicted rapist lives in the apartment next door. Thoughts on how to proceed?43 replies
