If my husband and I are trying to get a place for rent and he was arrested but the charges where Nolle Prosequi, does that mean it will come up?

Can they hold that against us and not let him in?

If you and your husband are trying to rent a place anywhere in the sate of Florida, most of the time there are going to require a background check on all tenants. Because he had a previous arrest under NOLLE PROSEQUI, it will show the arrest , but it will show as a non prosecution. It is up to their discretion to accept or deny the application based on those grounds.
