Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: Is there protection for tenants in foreclosure actions now that the federal act's sunset provision has taken effect?

Answer: You can go to the National Housing Law project http://nhlp.org/node/1341#arizona for information on foreclosure actions. Disclosure of Foreclosure to Prospective Tenants (Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 33-1331) Arizona requires a landlord to notify prospective tenants if the property is being foreclosed upon. If the owner fails to comply, the tenant may recover damages and seek injunctive relief. The law does not cover multifamily properties of four or more units. Pre-Foreclosure Sale Notice to Tenants (Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 33-1331) Arizona requires a landlord to notify existing tenants of a pending foreclosure sale. If the owner fails to comply, the tenant may recover damages and seek injunctive relief. The law does not cover multifamily properties of four or more units.
