09 Aug Buying a house on behalf of a sex offender [IN]
EDIT: They'd be my occasional room mate. It would be my house. Sex offenders have to register after 7 days of being at an address. Something like that. So yes, this house has to be away from and schools or parks if I want to house my family member when they need a place to stay.
Hey, I'm looking to get a house. One of my family members is a registered sex offender. They still have trouble finding a place to live, even though the case was over a decade ago.
They're hard workers and honestly decent people. Made and paid for a mistake while they were struggling with things that happened to them in the past. I'm tired of seeing them be pushed around with other family members or having periods of intermittent homelessness because of this.
A house is a big investment. I need a realtor to help me find one.
How do I (realistically) explain that any house needs to be 1000ft away from any schools or parks?
Can I have confidence in my realtor to keep the information private if I say it's because one of my family members is a sex offender who may be living with me?
