Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: What if your landlord is making you stay 60 days over the end of the lease because they fail to have you come in to fill out the vacate form but was informed face to face and by email of your hardship to continue residency? You did however give the a 30 day notice!

Answer: As a general rule, a tenant who remains in possession of a dwelling after the lease has ended becomes responsible for continuing to pay rent on a month-to-month basis, and therefore must provide the landlord with 30 days’ written notice of the tenant’s intention to leave (A.R.S. 33-1375). Unless the lease specified that 60 days’ written notice is required, if you provided the landlord with 30 days’ written notice, then it might be wise to speak with an attorney.
