Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: Can I see the apartment complex because they keep promising me that they are going to do something about the neighbor who screams at his girlfriend 24/7? I've been told he's not allowed on the property, yet i hear him yelling every single day. I've also heard the police come escort him off the property at least 3 times. He's here every single day. I'm sick of having to listen to this man yell constantly. What can I do?

Answer: Under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 10), every tenant is required to “conduct himself and require other persons on the premises with his consent to conduct themselves in a manner that will not disturb his neighbors’ peaceful enjoyment of the premises” (A.R.S. 33-1341). If a tenant is acting in a way that is unduly disruptive to the qualify of life of the tenant’s neighbors, then the landlord has a responsibility to notify the tenant that the tenant’s conduct is in violation of A.R.S. 33-1341 and to inform the tenant that if the tenant does not stop disturbing the tenant’s neighbors, then the landlord may seek the tenant’s eviction (as per A.R.S. 33-1368). If you are one of the neighbors of such a tenant, then you may wish to send a letter of your own to the landlord reminding the landlord of the landlord’s responsibility to protect your own peaceful enjoyment of the premises.
