Question: I am the landlord and the toilet water line burst and flooded apartment. I am paying to have everything replaced and cleaned up but the tenant has to vacate for 2 days. Do I have to pay for a hotel for them to stay in?
Answer: According to the Arizona Attorney General’s office, the following is an example of how to handle this type of situation:
Temporarily move out until the landlord makes the necessary repairs. You may then deduct rent for the time you did not live in your home. For example, if your rent is $750 a month, then your daily rent is about $25. If your air conditioning breaks and you have to stay in a motel for five (5) days, you can multiply five by $25 and subtract $125.00 from your next rental payment.”
