Question: My landlord has not paid property taxes this year and is behind on the morgage pymts. The house is not in foreclosure yet. Does he still have the right to evict me for non-pymnt. ?

Answer:

Title 33 of the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) contain laws pertaining to property. Title 33, Chapter 10, Article 4 discusses remedies in the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. A.R.S. § 33-1368 contains information on what a landlord can do if their tenant does not pay rent.

You may want to review the lease agreement that you signed with the landlord when you first moved into the property. You may also want to look at the Landlord and Tenant Rights & Responsibilities Article posted on this website.
