Question: If you are living with a realitive and they call to kick you out when you are on vacation, what are your legal rights?
Answer: This depends on whether you have a lease with the relative or not. You should look to the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act found here: https://www.azag.gov/sites/default/files/sites/all/docs/civil-rights/fha/TenantRightsResponsibilities.pdf Under A.R.S. 33-1314(D), if you have no rental agreement and you pay every week you are a week-to-week tenant. If you have no rental agreement and you pay every month, you are a month-to-month tenant. Under A.R.S. 33-1375(A), a week-to-week tenancy may be terminated by written notice provided at least ten days prior to termination. Under A.R.S. 33-1375(B), a month-to-month tenancy may be terminated by written notice at least thirty days prior to the end of a month (So if you pay rent on the 1st, the written notice must be provided no later than the 1st of the prior month). Note that in both cases, calling you to kick you out is insufficient. Notice must be provided in writing.
