Question: Can a Landlord deny a rental due to a felony arrest from 10 years ago that was dismissed in court?

Answer: A landlord can refuse to rent to a tenant so long as it is a reasonable refusal. Landlords do have wide discretion when it comes to who they rent to; however, they do have to comply with fair housing laws which prohibit them from denying a tenant based on sex, sexual orientation, national origin, etc. For more information please visit www.housing.az.gov.
