QUESTIONS

  • The landlord recently handed out notices to everyone that they owe tax on their January rent and the rent tax has increased 2%. There was no notification of the increase and they are also taxing the tax amount stated in the lease. Example: My rent is $550 + $10tax, I now owe $1.10 for January and $1.10 every month there after. I know the amounts are low but in principal. Can they do this and try an evicition over it?
  • How long do i have to notify the other party of a pay change and how do i go about notifying them?
  • I am trying to get guardianship and conservatoship for my parents. The county stepped in when they discovered the value of their assets. Now i have no legal rights or access to my parents. i cannot afford an attorney and the hearing is next week. Is there any help available?
  • my tenant moved out Feb 1st w 4 months left on lease. I simply received a text stating she moved, the keys were in the kitchen, no explanation, nor any request for repair, she would not return my phone calls. does a text qualify as written notice to vacate. lease required 60 days notice. the tenant at neighboring property I rent was arrested, an inaccurate article appeared in the paper now the lease breaker wants her entire deposit refunded. I re-leased her property, sent her a deposit refund less prorated rent to re-lease date, late fee, minimum cleaning charge, per lease. she reported nothin
  • We line in a 55+community and each year the palms are trimmed and we have to pay for them, I was told most mobilhome parks don't charge the tenent in AZ for palm trimming, but get charged every year. We pay rent on a space, is it our responsibility to pay for them or should the park owner pay ? The rent goes up each year, and we still have to pay for their palms to be trimmed. Is there a law that the owner should be paying for these? Thank you
  • My car was recently repossessed. I spoke w/ the fa dept wanting to pay everything I need to pay to get it out and set my pymts up for weekly. The dept is telling me I have to wait 7-8 days for a letter to be generated and recd before I can make my pymt. Meanwhile, im getting charged storage fees everyday when I could just pay for it. Do I have to wait to receive a letter telling me I already know what happened and what I need to do? I want to pay today to get my car out.
  • I see repeatedly in agreements that Tenant is "responsible" for insuring the mobile home. The Act itself doesn't address this, and the agreements also state the Act supersedes the agreements. Is insuring the mobile home a "requirement" in Arizona, or a Tenant "responsibility" which a Tenant could choose to do or not do?
  • I understand there is a 48-hr required notice for showing a property occupied with tenants. If the tenant agrees says it is ok, is it ok to ask for an earlier showing, as long as I inform them that they are not obligated to allow it that early? Or would they still have legal recourse if they agree and is shown with less than 48 hr notice?
  • How can i get my case number without having go down the DES Office?
  • I just found out I have a protective order filed against me that says it has been served I have never been served what do I do
