I received an eviction letter, but I have no money to pay any payment. Luckily I am in the process of hiring in a much better job. Is there any help in Tucson Az to avoid the Eviction?

Answer:

There is a forcible detainer (Eviction) if:
•A tenant whose lease has been terminated or receives written demand of possession by the landlord. And retains possession of the property has been terminated or
•The tenant refuses for five days after written demand to give possession to the landlord or
•A person who has made a forcible entry upon the possession of a tenant for a term refuses to deliver possession to the landlord for five days after written demand, after the term expires. A.R.S. 12-1173.

A person is guilty of forcible entry and detainer, if they willfully and without force, hold over any real property after termination of the time of the lease, after demand is made in writing by the owner. A.R.S. 12-1171.
