Question: Are landlords allowed to park across the street and watch a unit at 2:30am ? only to later use what he or she saw as evidence in an informal hearing to terminate a tenant?

Answer:

The landlord tenant relationship is governed by A.R.S. 33-1301 through 33-1381. http://www.azleg.state.az.us/ArizonaRevisedStatutes.asp?Title=33

There are several restrictions on the actions that landlords and tenants may take regarding each other and restrictions on terms that can be lawfully included in a lease agreement. However, the law permits the landlord and tenant to establish most of their own terms in their contractual lease agreement. A.R.S. 33-1314. http://www.azleg.state.az.us/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/ars/33/01314.htm&Title=33&DocType=ARS Whether a landlord has wrongfully evicted a tenant can only be determined with reference to the terms of the specific lease agreement, except in cases where a landlord acts in direct violation of a statute. If a tenant has cause to believe he or she has been wrongfully evicted, the tenant should consult with a licensed attorney for evaluation of his or her specific case.
