questions & answers

Question: How many days do I have to get my beds n large furniture out before the landlord throws it our?

Answer: It depends on the details pertaining to the termination of your lease and the notice to vacate (ex. 5-day notice, 10-day notice, ect.). A.R.S. § 33-341 (http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/ars/33/00341.htm&Title=33&DocType=ARS) discusses termination of tenancies. The statute states:
•A tenancy from year to year terminates at the end of each year unless written permission is given to remain for a longer period. The permission shall specify the time the tenant may remain, and upon termination of such time the tenancy expires.
•A lease from month to month may be terminated by the landlord giving at least ten days notice thereof. In case of nonpayment of rent notice is not required.
?A tenant from month to month shall give ten days notice,
?and a tenant on a semimonthly basis shall give five days notice, of his intention to terminate possession of the premises.
?Failure to give the notice renders the tenant liable for the rent for the ensuing ten days.
•When a tenancy is for a certain period under verbal or written agreement, and the time expires, the tenant shall surrender possession.
?Notice to quit or demand of possession is not then necessary.
•A tenant who holds possession of property against the will of the landlord, except as provided in this section, shall not be considered a tenant at sufferance or at will.
