Answer: The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. Under ARS 44-101(6), lease agreements of less than one year in length are not required to be in writing. Under ARS 12-1173(2), if a tenant fails to pay rent according to the lease agreement (oral or written), a landlord may evict (forcible detainer) the tenant after delivering a written 5-day notice to pay or vacate the premises.
