questions & answers

Question: What are the legal reasons a landlord can give a tenant a 24hr eviction notice?

Answer: Under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, a landlord may deliver to a tenant a notice of immediate termination of the rental agreement only “if there is a breach that is both material and irreparable and that occurs on the premises” (A.R.S. 33-1368(A)). Examples of such a serious breach include (but are not limited to) “an illegal discharge of a weapon, homicide ... prostitution ... criminal street gang activity ... the unlawful manufacturing, selling, transferring, possessing, using or storing of a controlled substance ... threatening or intimidating ... assault ... acts that have been found to constitute a nuisance ... or a breach of the lease agreement that otherwise jeopardizes the health, safety and welfare of the landlord, the landlord’s agent or another tenant or involving imminent or actual serious property damage.”
