Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: My landlord is kicking us out of the house a month before our lease is up. During the time of our stay in this home, no repairs have been made after we notified them and the previous tennents possesions are still in the home. They have also refused to give us an copy of our original SIGNED lease and instead emailed us an changed copy that had our name typed out through a different person months later. Full access to the house was not given despite what was implied in the lease. They made unannounced visits and we have reasonable suspicion that they are leasing this home without a license.

Answer: The Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 10) describes the housing-related legal rights and responsibilities of residential landlords and tenants. If you believe that your landlord has failed to comply with the Act, you may wish to speak with an attorney. There are links to free and low-cost legal services on this website.
