Answer: The following information can also be found at http://justicecourts.maricopa.gov/CaseTypes/eviction.aspx with a link to the forms required. 

The Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act applies to a lease for an apartment, a house or a mobile home. A.R.S. §§ 33-1301 - 33-1377. If the lease is for a space in a mobile home park, then a different set of laws apply. A.R.S. §§ 33-1401 - 33-1501.

Eviction cases are governed by the Arizona Rules of Procedure for Eviction Actions.

Eviction Actions

General Information
Under Arizona law, some things are illegal to put into a lease. For example, a landlord cannot let someone live somewhere rent free in return for not maintaining the property. A.R.S. § 33-1316. A landlord also cannot refuse to rent a place to someone because they have children. A.R.S. § 33-1317. A landlord is also required to register the property with the county assessor and list the property owner’s name, address and telephone number. A.R.S. § 33-1902.

A tenant must pay the rent and must pay that rent on time. If a tenant does not pay the rent, the landlord will likely start an eviction action. There is no provision in Arizona law that allows a tenant to withhold rent because the landlord is being disagreeable or because a landlord broke oral promises to a tenant. Except as is explained below, a tenant may not withhold rent.

Tenant Obligations
In addition to the obligation to pay rent on time, a tenant must do the following under Arizona law.
A.R.S. §§ 33-1341 & 33-1344.

  • Keep the residence clean and safe
  • Remove and dispose of trash
  • Keep all plumbing fixtures clean
  • Use electrical appliances, heating and air-conditioning systems and plumbing in a reasonable manner
  • Not damage the property or allow someone else to do so
  • Unless agreed otherwise, use the property only as a residence
