Well, it IS Seattle, so cannot say I am surprised, but I can see the unintended consequences now when landlords sell their properties in Seattle and everyone starts complaining there are no available rentals.

Wow... that's interesting.  I'd hate to be a landlord in Seattle.  Maybe they can start utilizing a "by referral only" policy, by-passing traditional advertising and background checks.

I have no comment on this... I don't rent property and have no itention of doing so... it's another crazy law, however, showing government's continual intrusion into the private lives of citizens.

Seems an add-on to the HUD rule about criminal histories.  Sounds like you can still look up the info though, so that's good.  It doesn't worry me, there are plenty of ways to work within that reg and keep habitual evictions and axe murderers out of your properties.

Landlords have little control including evictions where the tenant lives for free and the courts think they are doing the right thing!

This may be a tough pill to swallow.  As a property management company, we try to put in tenants who will honor the lease, care for the property and pay rent timely.  It think a criminal with violent tendencies, or someone found guilty of cooking meth, embezzling, etc might not make the best tenant?  

Am I wrong?

I have attended some classes on this being considered discrimination and felons that have repaid their debt to society should not be punished further. i don't agree. Sex offenders have to register for life so it follows them.
