There are no laws against asking for such info. Sounds like it's just the policy of the landlord/management. Requiring such info is very common.

A landlord has a relevent interest in making sure that their tenant is in good financial standing and has a good record when it comes to their bills. It's not illegal to require a tenant show this as a prerequisite of letting to them - it's standard practice.
