I,m on section 8 and about 6 months ago I went to rent a new apartment .they did a criminal backgroud check and found criminal activity from 1985 to 2001 on my record. misdimenors and felonies done by my sister ,that I didn`t know about,so they wouldn`t rent to me. and since then I`ve been trying to find out how to clear it up. and no one will help me.I was told to get finger printed so ,I did. but now, I`m at a stand still. nobody wants to rent to me.where I got fingerprinted they told me it was illegal for apartments to do criminal background checks, but ,all of them do.I`ve rented two prior apartments in 2004 and 2001 and it never came up before.I don`t know what to do,I can`t afford alawyer because I,m disabled and on disability and need to move closer to my family because they help me with transportation to doctors appts. ect.
