Proposed Seattle Legislation update to Limit use of prospective tenant's criminal history

Posted Tuesday, August 8, 2017 by Christopher L. Thayer

Seattle Legislation Update:

The Seattle City Council is considering passing an ordinance which would prohibit landlords from screening prospective tenants based on criminal histories (except for registered sex offenders). The proposed ordinance will be presented to the full Council for a vote in the near future. This legislation is based on a proposal Mayor Ed Murray sent to the Council in June 2017.

More information about the proposed provision can be found here: http://seattle.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=3089232&GUID=49272C76-0464-4C6E-A1FF-140591D00410&FullText=1
