questions & answers

Question: I live with my parents and I’m 25 years old. I pay rent weekly without a lease. My dad is threatening to kick me out everyday. Can I just be kicked out?

Answer: Under Arizona law a rental agreement is any agreement “written, oral or implied by law” embodying the terms and conditions concerning the use and occupancy of a dwelling unit and premises (A.R.S. 33-1310). This means that a tenant does not need a written lease in order to have an enforceable right to use and occupy the premises. When a tenant has a week-to-week rental agreement, the landlord must give the tenant at least ten days advance written notice of the termination of that rental agreement (A.R.S. 33-1375).
