Question: My sister's house has had (2) attempted break-ins in the last 1.5wk. She's buying a security system but I wondered if her landlord should be responsible for this?
Answer: Under the Landlord/Tenant Act (A.R.S. §§ 33-1322 – 1324.) the landlord is responsible for: Provide the tenant with the name and address of the property’s owner and manager Provide the tenant with a free copy of the Arizona Landlord and Tenant Act Provide the tenant with a signed copy of the lease Provide the tenant with possession of the residence Comply with applicable building codes Make necessary repairs so that the residence is habitable Keep common areas clean Maintain all electrical, plumbing, heating, and air-conditioning equipment Provide for the removal of trash Supply running water and reasonable amounts of hot water There is nothing in the statues that the landlord is responsible for a security system. You may want to contact the landlord to see if they are willing to assist with the cost.
