California - New Tenant

Wondering about a new tenant. Excellent credit history, solid work back ground but has a 1 misdemeanor for DUI - 5 years ago. Over 55 community. Thoughts?

You’d be surprised to find out how many people have a DUI on their record. This alone wouldn’t keep me from allowing them to live in my community.

Investigate the Mobile Home Residency Law 798.74
Legally, there are 3 reasons for you to deny a tenant

  1. Management reasonably determines that, based upon the purchaser’s prior tenancies, they will not comply with the rules and regulations of the park.
  2. The purchaser does not have the financial ability to pay the rent, estimated utilities, and other charges of the park.
  3. The purchaser has committed fraud, deceit, or concealment of material facts during the application process.

A 5 year old DUI wouldn’t be an issue for me.
