No Prohibition Against Renting To An Illegal Alien

  Question:  My husband and I own several rental homes in Queen Creek.  A lady recently applied to rent one of our homes and admitted that she is an illegal alien.  She does have proof of income where she works and otherwise seems like a good tenant.  Can we rent to her after she has told us she is an illegal alien?

  Answer:  There is no prohibition against you renting to an illegal alien. Similarly, there is no Fair Housing law or other law that would require you to rent to an illegal alien, but the reason for not renting cannot be based on race or ethnic background.
