Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: My fiancé and I moved out of our apartment at the end of December 2013 and just not received a cleaning fee. It's been a year and 5 months. After we moved out we went back 2 months and asked if we owed money and they said no. Now we get cleaning fee year and a half later. Can they do that? Isn't there like time frame they have to bill me? Please help me thanks.

Answer: All terms and duties between the landlord and tenant should be in the lease that was signed when you moved into the apartment, it may be beneficial to find a copy of the original lease agreement to determine if there was a clause on terms of cleaning fees. For further detailed advice on how this matter directly applies to you, contact an attorney, and feel free to review this article on the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (http://www.azlawhelp.org/articles_info.cfm?sc=24&mc=3&articleid=25) for further clarification.
