Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

Question: If I rented a home from someone and that person is not the owner and the police keeps thteating to arrest me what should I do

Answer: If what you are saying is that you are renting a place and they have threatened to evict you because you did not rent the place from the owner, you should first ask for proof of ownership. You may be able to find who the true owner is here by typing in the address (just street number, direction, and name). If in fact the person you rented from is not the owner and had no legal authority to rent to you, you are technically trespassing. You would have legal recourse against the person who defrauded you. I always recommend consulting the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act found here: https://housing.az.gov/sites/default/files/documents/files/AZ%20Residential%20Landlord%20and%20Tenant%20Act%20-%20Revised%20July%203%202015.pdf Please note that I am providing general information based on the very limited information available to me. I am unable to provide you with legal advice, and no attorney-client relationship is created hereby. I wish you the best in this and all your endeavors.
