Fair Housing Act 

Arizona law protects your right to have a place to live and makes it unlawful for any person to discriminate in connection with housing.  Under the Fair Housing Act it is against the law to engage in the following activities if done on the basis of a person's race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status or physical or mental disability:

  • Tell you housing is unavailable when it actually is available.
  • Only show you apartments or homes in certain neighborhoods.
  • Set terms, conditions or privileges for sale or rental of a dwelling different from other customers'.
  • Provide housing services or facilities different from other customers'.
  • Advertise housing to preferred groups of people only.
  • Refuse to provide you with information regarding mortgage loans, deny you a mortgage loan for which you qualify, or impose different terms and conditions on a mortgage loan.
  • Deny you property insurance.
  • Conduct property appraisals in a discriminatory manner.
  • Refuse to make reasonable accommodations or modifications for a person with a disability if the accommodation or modification is necessary to afford such person an equal opportunity to use and enjoy a dwelling.  Examples include accommodations for assistive aides or animals, accessible parking and minor physical modifications to existing properties.
  • Fail to design and construct multi-family housing in an accessible manner (applies to housing constructed after 1991).
  • Harass, coerce, intimidate or interfere with anyone exercising or assisting someone else with exercising their fair housing rights.
  • Refuse to rent to you or to sell you housing if a realtor is involved in the transaction.

FAIR MARKET RENTS

Fair Market Rents (FMRs) are primarily used to determine payment standard amounts for the Housing Choice Voucher program, to determine initial renewal rents for some expiring project-based Section 8 contracts, to determine initial rents for housing assistance payment (HAP) contracts in the Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy program (Mod Rehab), and to serve as a rent ceiling in the HOME rental assistance program. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) annually estimates FMRs for 530 metropolitan areas and 2,045 nonmetropolitan county FMR areas. By law the final FMRs for use in any fiscal year must be published and available for use at the start of that fiscal year, on October 1.
