Question: I listed my granddaughter as 18 month old. No fence or gate was around the pool from back doors of home, as required by permit under AZ Law. The lessor had a real estate agent as did we. The lease was broken, accepted by the lessor. The lessor does not want to refund $3,900.00 security deposit. The exterior fence from driveway also was not self closing either and we have pictures of both. Did the lessor break the AZ law by entering into a legal contract and not have a Permitted, Inspected fence and self closing gate around the pool, Knowing an 18 month old be occupying the leased home?

Answer: This is a complicated legal situation that merits a detailed conversation with an attorney. The fact that a person is not in compliance with one regulation does not necessarily mean that all their other legal rights disappear. The particular terms and conditions of a contract are among the factors that will govern whether money should be kept or returned.
