Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: Our leasing company who operates nation wide told me their contractors are legally obligated to tell them if they see or hear pets. (We don’t have one but our neighbors does, these houses are squished together) now they are trying to force fees with out me signing anything. It feels like an invasion, one of these dates this has been “recorded” was today while I’m at work. We haven’t requested for anything to be fixed. Is this legally allowed?

Answer: Any tenant who believes that their rights have been violated may wish to complain to the landlord in writing (keeping a copy for the tenant’s own records) and, if the landlord’s response is not helpful, seek legal advice. There are links to free and low-cost legal services on this website (at http://www.azlawhelp.org/accessToJustice).
