Anti Landlord Bills
Resident Campaign Materials
Help Us Help You

We need your help! The Connecticut Legislature is currently reviewing a bill that will limit the thorough criminal background screening of all prospective residents. We think you should know about House Bill 6431 and how it could impact the quality of life for you and your loved ones.

 Many landlords require criminal background and sex offender checks on every applicant upon leasing an apartment. New proposed legislation significantly limits landlords from even considering felony convictions before approving their new neighbors. This legislation not only affects all residents in our apartment community but all Connecticut-based apartment communities as well.

We are asking that you share this information with your residents.  Please use the attached documents and language for a resident campaign after approval from Owners/Managers/Companies. 

 Thank you, time is running out to fight these anti-landlord bills!
