I just had a property owner deny my application for a 2 bedroom unit because there are 5 people in my family. Is this legal in Tennessee?

Absolutely, it is their property and they can rent to whoever they want. If they don't want to rent to someone who smokes, has kids, has pets, or because they think you look unsavory and don't trust you for some reason. I wouldn't rent to you if you had five people for only two bedrooms and the fact that you ask this makes me think you that you think you are entitled which makes me REALLY not trust you. Landlords have to be careful because once they let you in their property it can very difficult to get a lousy tenant out. I am not saying You are lousy I am just saying they can have their opinion and put whoever they think is best in their house.

With thr fair housing act. The landlord can deny you for the five occupants, However they cannot deny you if you have children.
