Answer: The Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant act does require every tenant 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), and landlords do have a duty to make sure that their tenants fulfill that obligation. However, if you would like to determine the responsibility of a landlord for the criminal conduct of another tenant and the potential civil liability resulting from that conduct in your specific situation, you should speak in detail about what happened with an attorney.
