If you are experiencing a dispute with a landlord or tenant, you may be wondering where to start.
Landlord-tenant disputes in Phoenix, Arizona involve both complex state laws governing contracts and other matters and the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Acts, one of which is for standard rentals and the other which governs rentals in mobile home parks.
For someone who doesn’t work in the legal system, it can be difficult to figure out how to find the law that supports your side.
A tenant law attorney can help you get through the complex web of rules and regulations and help you build your case.
According to the Arizona Department of Housing, disputes between renters and landlords are private matters, so the State will generally not help when you have a dispute.
The law firm of Cronus Law, PLLC, can help you if you are going through a dispute now or if you want advice on how to avoid a dispute in the future.
Are You a Landlord or a Tenant?
In the past, there weren’t as many rules to protect the individuals in a landlord-tenant relationship.
Arizona landlord-tenant law is meant to help solve disputes and protect both the property owners and the residential tenants.
Most disputes involve rent payments, security deposits, and the condition of the property. How you approach your issues will depend on which side you’re on.
Arizona landlords have their own rights and responsibilities, and we can help in the following areas:
When someone isn’t paying rent or is breaking other rules, you may be forced to turn to eviction as a remedy. There are rules, such as notice requirements, which you must follow to be successful. Your tenant may be entitled to damages if you evict wrongfully.
You have a right under your contract to receive payment, and we can help you explore your options when your tenants aren’t paying.
There is no right to damage property just because it is a rental, and we can help you recover damages.
Breach of Contract on a Lease
There may be other ways the lease is being violated, and we can help you choose the best remedy.
Tenants also have rights and responsibilities under the law, and we can help you if you have problems involving:
An Unlawful Eviction
If you are forced to leave your home without proper cause, or if you are forced out by the conditions, you may be entitled to damages. This includes if the landlord turns off the utilities in your home, leaving the residence in an uninhabitable condition. Reach out to our experienced staff today to ensure your rights are being upheld.
Loss of Personal Property
This will depend on how the loss occurred, but you may be entitled to damages.
Under the Fair Housing laws, no landlord can discriminate against a current or potential tenant because of an individual’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status, or physical or mental disability.
Repairs and Maintenance Problems
Situations such as these are case-specific; however, a landlord is required to to maintain the property to certain standards and conditions as delineated by your rental agreement and Arizona law.
Breach of Contract on a Lease
Prior to vacating the property, it is in your best interest to find out what your responsibilities are to mitigate any future claims by your landlord.
