I paid a deposit on an apt at Olde English and then discovered that a sex offender would be living in the apt next to me! I assumed that they screened for those things, but they said no. I got my money back and moved elsewhere. I'm pretty sure that the same company owns all of the properties that you mentioned so be careful and check the sex offender registry before signing a lease.

So, did you check for former murderers, burglars and drug dealers also living there or do you only break out in hives for sex offenders? You are ridiculous.

I lived in the Tyler Mountain apartments that they owned and it was pretty nice. No one bothered us and we had no issues.

I've lived in the Charleston area for about 7 years now and I bounced around a few different apartments in the cross lanes area. I have been at the Presidio for the past 2 1/2 years and its been wonderful. I can assure you if you tour one of their townhouses you will understand, they have garages also. The average townhouse at the Presidio is around $1k per month. Good luck!

Duh, they can't deny someone housing due to being a sexual offender, they would be sued for sure.

They absolutely can!!! Check the law and you will find that they reserve the right to deny housing based on criminal background. Duh!

I own server all rental properties in Kanawha County. The law is less clear on this topic. On one hand, the law prohibits sex offender registry information from being used for the purpose of denying housing. A landlord who does use the registry for that purpose can be sued for damages and possibly fined. However, a landlord also has a duty to protect residents from known risks, or risks that the landlord should have been able to recognize.

You don't need to use the registry to deny housing if you are conducting background/credit checks on all applicants and denying on the same criteria for everyone.

obviously, you are all about trying to go around laws instead of working with laws. I hope they screen for people like you because I don't want to live around you.

If the apartments accept HUD the following regulations apply.

5/3/13
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
Admissions/Eviction Policies for Public Housing/Voucher Lease Holders
Admissions to Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher Programs
What are the federal policies governing admission of individuals with a criminal record to Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher programs?
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) explicitly requires two bans based on criminal activity. HUD requires that all Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) establish lifetime bans on the admission to the Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher (Tenant-Based Section 8) programs for:
&#61623; Individuals found to have manufactured or produced methamphetamine on the premises of federally assisted housing (24 CFR 960.204, 24 CFR 982.553); and
&#61623; Sex offenders subject to a lifetime registration requirement under a State sex offender registration program (24 CFR 960.204, 24 CFR 982.553)
PHAs must also prohibit admission if (24 CFR 960.204, 24 CFR 982.553):
&#61623; The PHA determines that any household member is currently engaged in illegal drug use;
&#61623; The PHA has reasonable cause to believe that a household memberís illegal drug use, alcohol use, or pattern of drug or alcohol abuse may threaten the health, safety, or right to peaceful enjoyment of the premises by other residents ; or
&#61623; A household member of the applicant was evicted from federally assisted housing for drug-related criminal activity in the past three years. In this case, however, PHAs have the discretion to consider the circumstances and may admit households if:
o the PHA determines that the evicted household member who engaged in drug-related criminal activity has successfully completed a supervised drug rehabilitation program, including those supervised by drug courts; or
o that the circumstances that led to the eviction no longer exist (for example, the household member who engaged in criminal activity is now in prison).
When do Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) have discretion to set local admission policies?
PHAs have a great deal of discretion to set admission policies for the public housing and Housing Choice Voucher programs. When screening family behavior and suitability for admission, PHAs may consider all relevant information, including negative factors (such as past drug criminal activity or violent criminal activity) and positive factors (such as evidence of rehabilitation or a familyís willingness to participate in social services).

Obviously you're a sex offender or you wouldn't have so much sympathy for them. Anyone who molests little kids is a sick individual that will never change. They have no value in my opinion and I don't care if they live under a bridge for the rest of their miserable lives! They should get the death penalty!

I moved to cross lanes 2 years ago and have lived in village hill. I have had no issues here and hope it continues. It seems to be on the low end of costs which is nice; however, I am sad they do not allow pets. Sometimes it is hard to get maintenance to your apt if you have an issue. I hope you find/found what you were looking for.
