During her representation of a potential tenant, the licensee discovered that the prospective tenant was a registered sex offender.  The agent is uncomfortable and wants to terminate the agency relationship.


May the agent terminate the agency relationship because the prospective tenant is a registered sex offender?


See discussion.


Assuming that the reason for the desired termination is that the prospective tenant is a sex offender, the agent may terminate the relationship.  Registered sex offenders are not a protected class under Arizona state or federal Fair Housing Laws.
