Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I've rented a home that has 3 bedrooms, when inspecting the house the a.c. was not on so I was not aware that one of the bedrooms has little airflow. A.c. guy said ductwork need to be done. This a 6month old child's room. Landlord said it's too expensive to do the duct work. What are my rights about this? Can I be refunded my last 2 months rent because the do not want to do the duct work?

Answer: In order for a tenant to exercise her/his rights under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 10), the tenant ordinarily must provide written notice to the landlord stating the tenant’s intentions immediately upon discovering the problem rather than two months later. However, you still may have some options. You may wish to contact an attorney in order to discuss the situation – including when and how you communicated with your landlord about the problem – in detail. (The details are very important.)
