The Arizona Fair Housing Act Precludes Discrimination Due to Familial Status

The Arizona Fair Housing Act, at A.R.S. 41-1491.01, precludes discrimination due to familial status.  Specifically, the Section provides that it is illegal to discriminate in connection with many housing-related transactions, including the sale or rental of housing, because a person is pregnant, living with a minor (in most cases), or is in the process of obtaining legal custody of a minor.

Individuals who feel they have been wrongfully discriminated against, or who have been accused of such discrimination, should consult with an Arizona landlord and tenant lawyer to discuss their rights and obligations in further detail.
