Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I rent a room month-to-month. Today the live-in land lord told me to move. I know I have 30 days. Do I have to pay the rent on the first of the month?

Answer: The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directlyA landlord may terminate a month-to-month lease with written notice and must provide at least 30 days before the end date of the tenancy. (See ARS 33-1375). Rent is due according to the terms of the lease agreement and failure to pay rent when agreed could lead to a landlord evicting the tenant (See ARS 33-1368(B)). It is common for rent to be due on the first of the month; however a rent will normally be paid through the end of the rental period. Depending on the move-out date, the rent may be prorated through the day of move-out.
