Question: Can I be evicted for the dirt in my yard? MY dogs play out there which makes dust. The Ac is getting really dirty and the ac guy said He has the comletley clean it out now and will now have to call the landlord. Can they evict me for that?
Answer: Under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (ARLTA), a tenant must (among other things) “not deliberately or negligently destroy, deface, damage, impair or remove any part of the premises or knowingly permit any person to do so” (A.R.S. 33-1341(6)). If a tenant violates the rental agreement or A.R.S. 33-1341 or any other provision of the ARLTA in a significant way, then the landlord may serve the tenant with a 10-day notice specifying the nature of the “material breach” (or a 5-day notice if the breach threatens health or safety) and stating that if the breach is not “cured” (fixed) within 10 (or 5) days, then the landlord will seek the tenant’s eviction in court (A.R.S. 33-1368(A)).
