As far as I'm concerned ether lock someone up, or let them be free. Don't make them live like an animal, otherwise they will act like one.
If the government wants landlords to rent out rooms to felons, then they should be responsible for giving the landlords incentive to do such a thing. What landlords risk every time they rent out to a tenant is a "bad" tenant who does not pay or damages/destroys the property. Landlords want to minimize that risk and hence do credit checks and background checks.

You guessed wrong.

I have rented in very bad neighborhoods. I get rid of folks when they don't pay, and quick! The problem has to be dealt with. Like I said earlier, you can't just kick the can and send these people out to the edge of town to fly under the radar. You just end up with more crime and people who feel slighted by the government.

None of these solutions make me happy - there is only a lesser of evils.

Lots of ways for me to pick a good tenant. One is to make sure they have a drivers licence. Another is to check their credit. Also, I go to their current house to "sign something" and I see how they live.

A simple letter to the "actual" owner of the house that they currently rent [and not their lying relative] is like gold.

Also, I want a copy of their current bills. That is always telling.

FD you're a walking contradiction. you don't want the Govt to tell anyone what to do. but being in the ins business its OK for them to tell people they must have car insurance? i guess its like rules suck, unless i can benefit from them

Apply that to the rest of the country, and now you understand why we are in the shape we are in. People don't give a crap what the government does until it affects them.
