Question: I had to evict my tenant and filed a Summons,served her and she finally moved after 7 days. She has refused to pay me what is owed. How do I collect the money owed?
Answer: According to A.R.S. 22-504 A an individual having issues recovering monies are encouraged to investigate small claims court. In the event that the amount is under $3500 dollars a Justice of the Peace is able to hear the case and rule on its merits. If the decision is made to go this route the Justice of the Peace decision and appeals are not allowed unless the case is transferred and a request is made within ten days.
