What type of criminal background would get you denied for rental?

I have 7 years of positive rental history, make almost 4x the amount of asking rent price (they only require 3x), and a decent credit score of 665 with no broken leases. I am looking to move from my current apartment to an upgrade.

I have been told by many people that I would be accepted for a new lease based on this information alone, but then they bring up criminal background and I'm not sure what would be the causes for denial.

As a firm that handles a lot of property management on single and multi-family homes we generally have a background check for approval processes. We make it a point to inform all applicants of approval requirements such as background checks that do not have misdemeanors, felonies, or registered sex offenders. However, some landlords have been known to accept some misdemeanors depending on the charges and current status of charges against a prospective tenant. Every property management company and landlord has varying acceptance standards. It's best that you ask what the approval requirements are regarding background checks for each home or apartment you are considering before applying as most application fees are non-refundable. Also, note that with an upgrade many places will re-qualify you to ensure that you qualify for the larger more expensive unit and sometimes that includes a new background check to be run. It's not a very direct or set standard answer.

There are exceptions to the rule of being denied due to what shows up on your background check, such as a felony that is very old, the type of and number of criminal activity that shows up, where the place is that you are wanting to rent. For example if you cannot live near a school then you might qualify for a home that is not near a school or a duplex that does not have children living in the same community. New fair housing laws state that you mostly cannot be denied strictly due to your background check.

Many landlords claim the reason for a policy is to protect the safety of other tenants at their property. This is generally considered a legitimate reason to refuse to rent to a tenant with a criminal history. ... In addition, landlords cannot refuse to rent to prospective tenants who have been arrested but not convicted.
