Eviction

questions & answers

Question: My brother owns a construction company and hired a homeless man. He told the homeless man he could temporarily stay in a trailer that had no electricity or water, but a roof over his head. This trailer is on my property and the homeless man has since been fired by my brother and I gave him an eviction notice and he has not made any attempt to move out. He built a shed on my property without permission using stolen material from my brothers construction company. How do I get him off my property? There was no written lease only a verbal agreement. I don't know what to do?

Answer: Under Arizona law, written rental agreements and verbal rental agreements are equally valid (A.R.S. 33-1310). When a month-to-month rental agreement exists, the landlord may terminate that agreement by providing written notice to the tenant at least 30 days in advance, while when a week-to-week rental agreement exists, the landlord may terminate that agreement by providing written notice to the tenant at last 10 days in advance (A.R.S. 33-1375). If, even after the tenant has received this notice, the tenant refuses to leave, then the landlord may seek the tenant’s eviction in court (A.R.S. 33-1377).
