Eviction

questions & answers

Question: I m jn the process of filing a complaint with Az State Commissioner for nonpayment of my wages . This has left me without funds for rent . Do I have any rights due this already stressful hardship to protect me and my 2 kids from becoming homeless?

Answer: With your current landlord, probably not. Leases do not usually take something like this into account. You could try talking to your landlord to see if they would be able to work something out with you, but they do not have to do so. You could also apply for HUD and if your landlord accepts it, that might be an option. It's a tough situation to be in and while you may have a resolution in the end, it does not help you right now. There are places who might be able to provide you emergency funds. I did a quick search online (Arizona help can't pay rent) and found several sites that looked like they provided lists of charities that might help.
