Webinar Date: May 19, 2016
Good landlords who rent to tenants with records can help the tenants stabilize their living situation, be better able to support their families, and live law-abiding lives in the community. Screening out tenants with a criminal history can strain community resources, threaten family security, and lead to homelessness and recidivism.
However, many landlords are understandably concerned about liability and safety when renting to those with a history. The Rental Housing Work Group would like to share with all of our landlord partners in Southwestern PA the best practices for renting to tenants with a criminal record so the tenant, the landlord, and the neighbors are safe and thriving.
This webinar was the 5th installment in a new series specifically designed to educate private market landlords on how current humanitarian efforts can grow your business while meeting the needs of your tenants.
