My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: NY
I had people coming in to see my rental apartment, a xxxxx (color don't matter) couple seems very nice, I told them the build is of majority xxxxx (the opposite color) people, but they are all nice. At the end I picked them, and proceeded to the background check part. Which I found that the guy was arrested 2 times for minor offenses, then I asked my police friend to check on him, and find out he has another 8 arrests also for minor offenses. The police friend's words were not official, and he is not supposed to do a check, he just do me a favor, so I am not going to say anything outside of this forum. But I don't want to take a guy who has been arrested 10 times before.
Now if I deny this couple (nothing was signed), am I going to be in trouble? What would be a nice way to say no to them?
