Question: Is there any provisions that afford the landlord from renting to felons?
Answer: The following is provided for general information only. Arizona law (https://www.azag.gov/sites/default/files/documents/files/FairHousingBrochure.pdf) protects your right to have a place to live and makes it unlawful for any person to discriminate in connection with housing because of an individual’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status or physical or mental disability. Transactions not covered under the Fair Housing Act: • Sale or rental of single family houses that are not sold or rented through a real estate broker or through discriminatory advertising. An owner has the right to sell or rent directly to whomever he or she wants, as long as the owner does not run an ad or make other discriminatory statements that violate the Fair Housing Act (such as stating that the neighborhood has a certain racial makeup) and does not own more than three single family homes. • Rental of apartments or rooms in a building containing no more than four units, if one unit is inhabited by the building’s owner. • Housing transactions by nonprofit religious organizations (that give preference to persons of the same religion) or private clubs. To find out how the law applies to specific circumstances, please explore the Legal Assistance (http://www.azlawhelp.org/legalaidlisting.cfm) page on this website to seek assistance from an attorney.
