Question: My landlord placed an immediate eviction notice on my door. Is it possible to immediately evicte someone without going to court?
The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. Generally, for a landlord to evict a tenant, they are required to give the tenant notice and an opportunity to cure any alleged default/breach of your lease/tenancy. If the tenant does not timely cure the default after notice, the landlord is generally required to file a detainer action in court, serve the tenant with it, and that tenant will have the opportunity to present their side of the story in court on a specified date. However, under ARS 33-1368, there are certain conditions under which a landlord can move to immediately terminate a tenant’s occupancy. More information can be found in the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act.
