Question by Amanda: Can a landlord require a criminal background check for a tenant who has been living at their residence?
I am wondering if it’s legal for a landlord to suddenly ask for a criminal background check from a tenant who has been living at their residence for a few years…. and requiring you to pay for the background check, as well as only giving you a week to get the background check. Is this legal? Can the landlord evict you if you do not it? What if you are the only tenant they are pinpointing, even if they said they were asking everyone?
I live in Indiana.
Signed a 2 year lease with one year remaining on that lease.
