Malinda; I am a retired probation officer. I'd like to suggest you present a copy of your court document which either stipulates the sentence or releases you from probation/parole/incarceration to your prospective landlord.
This demonstrates your ownership of the situation and your candid approach so the information is not discovered elsewhere. If you are currently on probation/parole you could ask your PO to assist you by speaking to the landlord. This only helps you if you are in good standing of course. Depending on your conviction there may be restrictions on where you can reside. Consult with the Court, your PO and your attorney.

In addition to the advice already provided--be honest in filling out any applications--you might have better success renting from an individual, versus an apartment complex. Some individuals may not do background checks. Those who do may be more willing to consider the case on an individual basis.

Hope that helps.

That is a tough one. It is best to let them know up front that there is a problem and see what their rules are. If they find out later, you are paying money for them to do search and that can get expensive and they can break your lease if you lie. Good luck.
