Housing Discrimination

questions & answers

Question: Can a landlord refuse to allow a tenant (single parent) to add a minor child to the lease?

Answer: A landlord can not refuse to rent because of the presence of minor children. A landlord can, however, enforce pre-existing "reasonable occupancy standards" if they apply to persons of all ages. A limit of no more than 2 persons per bedroom is presumed reasonable. The relevant provision of the landlord/tenant act is ARS 33-1317 F which can be found at www.azsos.gov
