Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello! I am a licensed attorney, eligible to practice in front of state and federal court, who is ready to help. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here to see my ratings information) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. If she is being bored, it may be dependent upon the kind of felony of which she was convicted. Sex offenders that are on a registry and those that produce meth or going to be permanently barred from section 8 housing. The same goes for illegal drug use. The same goes for violate crimes. The trouble is is that, each PHA can choose to impose stricter standards about admitting people with criminal histories than federal law requires.
One of the things that you can do is how the Housing Authority look at the mitigating factors of her situation. According to one of my most trusted sources, “Most Public Housing Authorities give credit to letters of support from your parole or probation officer, employer, social worker, treatment program or current landlord that show you are a responsible tenant and have put your past behind you.”
If she hasn’t tried those things, then she might be able to get in.
