Eviction

questions & answers

Question: My slum lord actually got a judgment against my husband for non payment of rent. The judge would not allow me to show any evidence at ALL in his courtroom I had pics, and receipts of my husband fixing the leaking roof after the SLUM LORD, told us he couldn't afford to fix, and said he would cancel this months rent. He took us to court for non payment and now we're evicted, no place to go and 3 children in school, and unable to get another home in time to move. What can be done, about more time, without having to pay the rent up until 30 days? What can buy a person some time?

Answer: Counterclaims for eviction proceedings are covered under A.R.S. 33-1365 A. An eviction may be appealed but if must be done within ten days of the judgement and you must post a bond. Other than appeal there is no way to delay the decision. If a person was not allowed to raise their claims against the landlord they can still do so in a civil lawsuit in Justice Court.
