Question: paid a full year rent, unit sold with 6 month left before yearly rent due. Does the landlord need to refund unused rent ?

Answer: Without knowing in detail what the rental agreement said, it is impossible to say exactly what should happen in your situation, but, as a general rule, a landlord has a duty “mitigate” (A.R.S. 33-1305(A)) – that is, a duty to do their best to reduce – any monetary damages the tenant suffers as a result of the tenant’s own breach of the rental agreement (for example, by vacating early). You may wish to discuss your specific circumstances with an attorney. There are links to free and low-cost legal services on this website (at http://www.azlawhelp.org/accessToJustice).
