We are about to offer our house as lease-to-own. Obviously we will be doing a credit check, but is it legal in Ohio to do a criminal background check as well?

It is not illegal to do a criminal background check as this is public information. Simply put a statement in your application for rental property that you will be doing such and have them sign it.
