Question: How can I help my fatherk who is elderly kick his grandson out of his house if he is an alcoholic and won't seek help. He also neglects his son so he can drink.
Answer: If there was never a rental agreement (written or otherwise) with a nonpaying person, including a family member, the person has no Tenant rights and the homeowner is not bound by the eviction rules and procedures of the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act. If the person does not leave when asked by the homeowner, he is guilty of misdemeanor criminal trespass [ARS 13-1504. Criminal trespass in the first degree; classification and law enforcement should remove him when contacted. http://www.azlawhelp.org/articles_info.cfm?mc=3&sc=24&articleid=25
