Answer:

Access by Landlord to the Residence A.R.S. § 33-1343 

A tenant cannot unreasonably withhold consent to the landlord to enter the residence in order to inspect the premises or make repairs. Unless there is an emergency or unless it is impracticable to do so, the landlord must give the tenant at least two days notice that he is going to enter the residence. The landlord can only enter at reasonable times. You may wish to speak with an attorney about this situation.
