Question: Can my landlord evict me after renting fir one eeek on a 6 month lease

Answer: In Arizona, eviction actions are called “special detainer” actions (A.R.S. 33-1337). Under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 10), a landlord may undertake a “special detainer” action if and when (1) a tenant violates one of the tenant’s obligations (such as the obligation to pay rent) and (2) as a result of this violation by the tenant the landlord wishes to retake possession of the rental unit. Regardless of when a tenant moved into the rental unit, the landlord may seek the eviction of that tenant – first by providing the tenant with formal written notice and second by asking a court to order that the tenant vacate the rental unit – for: (1) not paying rent in full and on time (2) failing to properly maintain the rental unit in a way that materially affects health and safety (for example, by engaging in criminal activity on the property; by violating applicable building codes; by willfully or negligently causing damage or destruction; by not or improperly disposing of garbage and other waste; or by improperly using electrical, plumbing, sanitary, heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, and other facilities and appliances) or (3) violating the rental agreement (for example, by providing false information on the rental application).
