Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: Thank you for allowing me a question....and answer. I leased a house October 2017, with a one year lease. After that it was "technically" on month-to-month. My husband and I purchased a house in Cave Creek with a VA loan closing in May 2019. To make it "easier" for my Landlord I found him a replacement tenant. She was accepted. My nightmare began.....she had the house - my purchased house fell out....the LL ignore me.......literally making me vacate the premises so the new tenant could move in. I was verbally abused - my property thrown on the driveway. I was homeless. Help?

Answer: Both the landlord and the tenant may terminate a month-to-month residential rental agreement by providing the other person with 30 days’ advance written notice (A.R.S. 33-1375(B)). Any tenant or former tenant who believes that their landlord or former landlord has acted unlawfully may wish to seek legal advice by contacting an attorney.
