The lease agreement is a contract that states the rights and obligations of the tenant and landlord, according to A.R.S. 33-1314.A. The lease agreement may also state the order by which the monies are used.
The landlord shall state the purpose of all non-refundable fees and deposits under A.R.S. 33-1321.B. Upon demand by the tenant, the landlord shall provide an “itemized list” of all deductions from the deposits together with the amount due and payable to the tenant, as explained in A.R.S. 33-1321.D.
If there are any doubts as to the lease agreement, please contact an attorney to provide you with explanation or advice. There is a list of low cost or free legal services on the AZLawHelp.org website. There are also attorneys that will give free consultations.
