Question: I had a verbal agreement with my landlord that i could take over payments and own the house i was renting from him. He changed his mind and now tells me i have to leave today. I am a elderly vet who lives on his disability checks. what right do i have? I have a witness to the verbal agreement.

Answer: Unfortunately a verbal contract to transfer title to real property is not enforcable. Under Arizona law it must be in writing (A.R.S. 44-101 (6)).
