Answer: The Arizona Revised Statues 33-343 states: Premises rendered untenantable without fault of lessee; nonliability of tenant for rent; right to quit premises The lessee of a building which, without fault or neglect on the part of the lessee, is destroyed or so injured by the elements or any other cause as to be untenantable or unfit for occupancy, is not liable thereafter to pay rent to the lessor or owner unless expressly provided by written agreement, and the lessee may thereupon quit and surrender possession of the premises. You may want to consult an attorney for legal advice.
