This article stops short of the result in favor of the Tenant - suggesting that this outcome is not a consideration.

This information is very helpful because I heard some very scary story about the lengthy court processing period.

QUESTIONS

  • My 24yr old step son has been living with his father and I for 3 years . He pays no bills , or contributed in any way . His dad made a verbal agreement with him 40 days ago for him to move out in 30days and his dad would give him 2000$ to move . He took the money and haven't heard anything since . He doesn't answer his phone or text . Can I pack his room and store his things . Or do I need to evict .
  • I have resided in the same rental property for over a year. I was told I was renewed for another year. 3 months into the second year the landlord (owner/realtor) told me I have to buy the house or move. He wants twice what it is worth or I have to move. I know this is not legal as a tenant but does this also violate real estate laws? I would very much like to report him to proper authorities but to whom would I report such a thing?
  • How can I evict the party who has purchased my home,foreclosed and have not left the premises? What is the process?
  • My mother will be going to long term care because of dementia and not be able to return home, her boyfriend lives with her, how do I get him out of the house?
  • I received a letter from an attorneys office stating that the home I am renting has been forclosed on.  How long do I have before being evicted? How do I recoup my deposit if I do not withold rent?
  • Two weeks ago I had a discussion with my landlord and his wife about being two weeks late on my rent and would need to pay it on the 14th of November. They were kind and said that would be fine and to come in around rent time to fill out a promissory note. During that time and now his (the landlord's) wife left him because he was very abusive. Now Sunday Nov 2nd I went in to fill out the contract to pay on the 14th and the landlord said he was evicting anyone who had anything to do with her. What can I do I am a single dad with no family in AZ.
  • Had building inspected privately and my unit had black mold. Myself and toddler became sick. They never fixed it. Made it worse by having us live in an unsuitable and unsafe living environment for about 2 weeks. There was water dripping from the open ceiling. They placed a large plastic cover over my bed with an extension chord that was lying over my bed hanging out window and left it. I have a toddler. Rain + Water and an open window! LEFT THE EXTENSION CHORD OUT THE WINDOW not smart. Wasn't fixed in 3 weeks so so I moved and they placed an eviction on my record. Need advice
  • I recently was Evicted from my apartment and locked out by the constable. Unfortunately I was unable to remove all of my belonging and was told I need to return make arrangements with the landlord to get the rest of my things. When I returned i was told that someone must have stolen my things. What do I do? I made a police report, But the property management told me they will not replace any of my things . Can anyone tell me what rights I have and what I should do thank you any help is much appreciated .
  • How do I go about removing people who live in my house who are not on the lease. I understand they have squatters rights. How would I go about legally removing them from my home? I am not the landlord I am the tenant, but my name is on the lease and all the bills. I do not want them in my home any more they have been here illegally for about 3 months. They are not on the lease, how can I legally remove them without losing the house myself?
  • How do i legally force my fiance's mother to move out? She's not on my lease and has been asked to leave since June. She advised that she will not leave and I need to know how to go about this the legal way.
