Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: recently moved to a home that was under remodel was assured with written agreements this would be complete 2 months after still not finished,but demanding all rent due? I have a lease and limited funds to move what do I do?

Answer: When the terms of a written agreement are violated by one of the parties to that agreement, a breach of contract claim may be possible. When a breach of contract occurs in the context of a residential lease between a landlord and a tenant, it is important for the tenant to remember that Arizona law does not permit a tenant to withhold either part or all of the tenant’s rent payment in order to compel the landlord to make promised or required repairs. You may wish to speak with an attorney to determine exactly what your rights and responsibilities are in your specific situation.
