The NRLA’s sample tenant Application Form fails to ask any questions regarding criminal history. Why is this?
I realise that any tenancy is based purely on affordability, but having tenants where the state pays the rent in its entirety, surely a Landlord can ask about criminal history and details of any unspent convictions etc?
I understand the tenant can refuse and are not obligated to answer any questions about historically spent convictions, but they are obligated to answer truthfully anything unspent at the point of application surely?
If the unspent issue concerned something where it could be a nuisance to neighbours/other tenants surely a LL has a right to take this into consideration and determine if a tenancy is granted or not?
