Question: If my landlord tells me to vacate in writing, can he charge me for future months rent?
Answer: As a very general rule, if a landlord terminates a rental agreement and the tenant moves out as a result of the landlord’s termination of the rental agreement, the landlord may only charge the tenant in rent whatever amount the tenant owed when the tenant moved out, as specified in the rental agreement. The landlord may also seek other monetary damages by suing the tenant in court (A.R.S. § 33-1373).
