Question: We just rcvd ltr stating that our lease will not be renewed and we will have to move by end of April, 2020. The problem with that is COVID-19 and we also have four children under the age of eight with one child being on the learning spectrum. It is a very difficult time now during this pandemic to try to find another place to live, obtaining a moving company and just the stress of it all. We would still be able to pay our rent, so that isn't the problem, but do we have any rights as renters as we are renting a house not apartment at this time?

Answer: You will need to talk with your landlord about this to see if you can reach an agreement on when you should move. Due to COVID-19 the Governor of Arizona has declared a State of Emergency certain that has impacted housing laws. You may want to review the housing section for more information on rights for renters: https://covid19.azlawhelp.org/housing. Hope this helps!
