Question: What’s the proper eviction processs a landlord must follow on pets ?
Answer: Under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 10), if a tenant breaches the rental agreement in a “material” way, then the landlord may deliver a written notice to the tenant specifying the acts or omissions constituting the breach and stating that the rental agreement will terminate upon a date not less than ten days after receipt of the notice if the breach is not remedied in ten days (A.R.S. 33-1368). If the ten days pass and the tenant remains in breach of the rental agreement, then the landlord may seek the tenant’s eviction by filing an eviction complaint with the court and serving the tenant with a summons and a copy of the complaint (A.R.S. 33-1377). The summons will identify the date of the hearing and inform the tenant that if the tenant wishes to dispute the allegations in the complaint, then the tenant should file an answer with the court (and serve that answer on the landlord) and appear at the hearing to speak directly with the judge about why the tenant should not be evicted.
