Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: The duplex I live has no heating, when i signed the agreement there wasn't anything said it wasn't working. Does owner need provide heating to all the residents here? I have three small kids and it's too cold, especially with tile flooring.

Answer: The landlord is required to supply reasonable amounts of heat. Failure to do so is a breach of the landlord tenant law and is ground for terminating the lease and or seeking damages for "dimunation of the rental value". The relevant statutory provisions can be found at ARS 33-1324 and 1364
