Question: Is there a time of year a landlord has to turn on the air conditioning

Answer: While there is no specific timeframe prescribed by law, the Rights and Responsibilities of a Landlord and Tenant are largely governed by the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. A.R.S. § 33-1324 requires the landlord to maintain the rental premises in a “fit and habitable condition.” Further, A.R.S. § 33-1324(4) requires that the landlord maintain in good and safe working order and condition: all electrical, plumbing, sanitary, heating, ventilating, air-conditioning and other facilities and appliances, including elevators, supplied by him. As such, the air conditioning and heating systems should be in good working order when you wish to use them. In the event the system is not working, you should notify the landlord, in writing, of the problem. While the landlord will have an opportunity to correct the situation, you will have documented any problem with the heating/cooling system in writing. The information contained in this answer is intended to be used as information only, and is not intended to be construed or interpreted as legal advice.
