Question: How long do I have to live with an ant infestation while they "try" to remedy it. This will be the 3rd months rent paid still having the problem.

Answer: This is for informational purposes only; you may want to contact an attorney for legal advice. Under A.R.S. 33-1361. Noncompliance by the landlord: A. Except as provided in this chapter, if there is a material noncompliance by the landlord with the rental agreement...the tenant may deliver a written notice to the landlord specifying the acts and omissions constituting the breach and that the rental agreement will terminate upon a date not less than ten days after receipt of the notice if the breach is not remedied in ten days. If there is a noncompliance by the landlord with section 33-1324 materially affecting health and safety, the tenant may deliver a written notice to the landlord specifying the acts and omissions constituting the breach and that the rental agreement will terminate upon a date not less than five days after receipt of the notice if the breach is not remedied in five days. 1. If the breach is remediable by repairs or the payment of damages or otherwise and the landlord adequately remedies the breach prior to the date specified in the notice, the rental agreement will not terminate. You should write such a notice to your landlord, and if the problem is not remedied by the date specified in your notice, you may terminate your lease. **This only applies if there is a provision in your lease saying that the landlord is responsible for pest control.
