Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts.
There is no law that prevents management from asking for the information and doing a background check. However, the backgrounds check isn't going to show anything since criminal records of a minor are sealed and not available to the public and, in addition, school records require a specific permission slip to be provided.
As far as "are they limiting her access to the home", I think the question to that is obviously. However, that isn't illegal (as in against the law) but it could be a breach of your contract. To know that for sure you would have to take a copy of the lease agreement as well as all of the other paperwork to a local lawyer to let them review.
This sounds like one of those times that you have a "flunky" of a corporation just following directions to the letter without actually understanding the circumstances or the effect of their actions.
You could also consider having a local lawyer write them a letter advising that this is both a breach of contract and a "constructive eviction". That could get you out of your lease early or make them responsible for moving costs.
Best wishes to you and please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work.
