Ok so we probably won't be moving into an apartment, but we may be moving and I was looking over the application to a really great new apartment in a great part of town. On it, it asks if you have ever been charged with a felony or arrested on felony charges. Well, the answer is yes for both my husband and me (stupid teenage prank gone wrong, nobody was hurt). I was arrested but never charged and my husband plead guilty but it was expunged from his record because he was a juvenile at the time.
My question is, does the apartment really have a right to this information??? According to the government and public records, the answer is no-our records are clean. How much information does an apartment complex really have a right to? What if they asked me if I wear g-string underwear or listen to rap music? Do I have to answer truthfully? My understanding is that I don't have to give them any information to which they are not entitled.
