Answer: Under Arizona law, a verbal rental agreement is just as enforceable a written rental agreement (A.R.S. 33-1310), in part because every rental agreement automatically incorporates all the provisions contained in the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (ARLTA) (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 10), which describes in detail the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants. A tenant who violates the ARLTA almost always automatically violates the rental agreement.
