Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: Hello, I don't know if this is the right category. I was supposed to move into an apartment May 2020 but due yo COVID-19 I'm cancelling my scheduled move in for safety purposes and other obvious reasons. I already paid application and admin fees while applying for the apartment. The apartment is saying I won't be able to get my administration fee back because I'm cancelling. Is this possible and what can I do? Thanks

Answer: If, at the time a tenant pays a rental application or other administrative fee, that fee is described as non-refundable, the landlord may keep the fee even if the tenant does not move in, regardless of why the tenant does not move in (A.R.S. ยง 33-1321(B)).
