Answer: I always recommend consulting the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act found here: https://housing.az.gov/sites/default/files/documents/files/AZ%20Residential%20Landlord%20and%20Tenant%20Act%20-%20Revised%20July%203%202015.pdf Initially I thought this could be a case of mistaken identity, but if they refuse to allow you to review the results of the background check, I am led to believe there may be discrimination occurring. The Arizona Attorney General is tasked with investigating and enforcing Arizona's Fair Housing Act. You can contact the office at 602-542-5263 or CivilRightsInfo@azag.gov and let them know if you believe you have been the victim of housing discrimination. Please note that I am providing general information based on the very limited information available to me. I am unable to provide you with legal advice, and no attorney-client relationship is created hereby. I wish you the best in this and all your endeavors.
