- Applicants with criminal history are not automatically excluded.
- Any criminal history will be evaluated in consideration of:
- When the crime occurred;
- What the underlying conduct entailed;
- What the applicant has done since the conviction(s).
D. The property owner may not accept applicants who have committed the following crimes:
1. Misdemeanor crimes against person or property, which are less than 7 years old from the time of the screening report.
- Felony crimes against person or property, which are less than 7 years old from the time of the screening report.
- In deciding whether to accept an applicant, who has been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony crime against a person or property, the following factors will be considered:
- the nature of and seriousness of the crime;
- the date of the conviction;
- the probationary period, if any;
- any court-required classes and compliance items, such as monetary judgments and victim restitution;
- and, if there has been a pattern of criminal activity.
- Any criminal convictions involving the illegal manufacturing or distribution of a controlled substance.
- Any conviction which subjects a household member to a registration requirement under a State or Federal Sex Offender Registration Act.
- The property owner does accept applications from applicants who have Juvenile records, as defined in *RCW 13.50.010(1) (c), and does not consider such records once the applicant is twenty-one years of age or older at the time of the screening report.
- The property owner recognizes an arrest is not the same as a conviction and, therefore, does accept applications from applicants who have arrests or pending criminal cases. However, if an applicant is subject to a pending criminal proceeding, the application may be placed on hold pending the disposition of the case.
