Jen, my apologies to you for the number of agents who have chosen to take this opportunity to try and push you into buying a home instead of answering your question. Whether you choose to rent or to buy, I hope you find the right home for you and your family that suits your budget, your lifestyle and your future plans.
I am not sure why you wonder if they can or can not.... they may just want to make sure that
you are talking about a child and not an adult child, as that may require an application etc.
Seldom requested but often willingly provided by the tenants like "let the landlord know who is moving into their property"
Landlords want to know your income, your employment, your references, your credit score and your background check.... the ages of children may just be asked to know who is moving into their home or did you think the question was asked for a different reason.
Feel free to get back to us...
Most Sincerely yours,

Do you realize you could BUY that house for less than it would cost to rent it? I've got loan programs available with $6000 down payment assistance, where the minimum investment on your end would be 1% of the purchase price.
And I don't know about renting, but on our application, there is a place for the ages of your children, so I'm assuming it's also legal to ask on a rental application.
Give me a call or shoot me an email if you'd like to exercise EVERY option for you and your children, including LOCKING in a low monthly payment on a house your family will be happy in!
