Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I was told by the rental company that Arizona passed a new law that if a person has a protective order they can get out of their lease. Is this true?

Answer: You can look up any Arizona law by visiting http://www.azleg.gov. To answer your question broadly, yes, Arizona may allow rental companies to break leases under certain exceptions (protective orders being one of them). Your situation is complex and fact-specific. Keep in mind I cannot give specific advice on how to exactly proceed.
