Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I have just been approved for an appartment in Peoria and I had to pay $125 admin. fee. This fee was supposed to be part of other fees during move in and now they are saying that it isn't. What can I do?

Answer:

The Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act has little to say regarding fees.  The law does limit the amount a landlord can require as a security deposit and mandates disclosure fo the purpose of any nonrefundable fees or deposits.  A.R.S. 33-1321.  The Act permits the parties to the lease to establish most terms as they so choose.  A.R.S. 33-1214.  It is impossible to properly answer this question without more facts.  To determine if an agreement has been breached or any rights have been violated, consult a licensed attorney.
