Question: Landlord hung a 10 day notice on my door today dated 7 days ago.That is not legal is it?

Answer: This depends on what the landlord was giving you notice about. According to the Arizona Tenants’ Rights and Responsibilities Handbook a landlord has different time lengths for proper notice depending on the issue. For instance a landlord must give notice at least two days (48 hours) notice in advance before entering a tenant’s home. Or in order for a landlord to raise rent or decrease services proper notice depends on the tenant’s lease agreement. For example if the tenant rent’s month-to-month, the landlord must give written notice at least thirty (30) days prior to the date the rent is due. Or, if the tenant’s rent is due the first of each month and the landlord gives the tenant notice on March 15 that the tenant’s rent is going up, that change does not take effect until May 1. However, if the tenant rents week-to-week, the landlord must give ten (10) days written notice. But if the tenant signed a year-long lease, the landlord cannot raise your rent until the term of the lease has ended. https://www.azag.gov/sites/default/files/sites/all/docs/civil-rights/fha/TenantRightsResponsibilities.pdf For more information about landlord responsibilities view the “Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities Article” http://www.azlawhelp.org/articles_info.cfm?mc=3&sc=24&articleid=25 To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. http://www.azlawhelp.org/articles_info.cfm?mc=5&sc=36&articleid=151
