Question: I missed mu eviction trial i had the landlordfor not providing basic utilities he had me for nonayment of rwnt i didnt show for trial can i appeal?
Answer: An initial verdict can always be appealed, but there are some specific rules concerning appeals in an eviction case. For a tenant to appeal an eviction, the court will require a deposit be made for the court to hold pending the outcome of the appeal. This amount is usually the total amount owed for back rent plus the court costs and attorney’s fees that were already paid by the landlord. In addition, the tenant is required to continue paying rent during the appeals process. A.R.S. 33-361 If judgment is given for the plaintiff, the defendant, in order to perfect an appeal, shall file a bond with the court in an amount fixed and approved by the court and payable to the clerk of the superior court, conditioned that the appellant will prosecute the appeal to effect and will pay the rental value of the premises pending the appeal and all damages, attorney fees, costs and rent adjudged against the appellant.
