Can a landlord deny me from going to my girlfriends house to visit because I have a criminal record?

The answer to your question probably depends on the language of your girlfriend's lease. There could be language in there which prohibits her from having visitors with a criminal background, and if it doesn't state that specifically, there could be other language which the landlord is using to apply to this situation. Your best bet would be to consult with a local landlord/tenant attorney - they can review your lease, obtain more facts and let you know if the landlord's actions are permissible. You can search for someone on Avvo or contact your local bar association for a referral. Good luck.
