Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act

Under Arizona State law there are two Residential Landlord and Tenant Acts, one that pertains to standard rental housing and the other to renters in Mobile Home Parks.

The Residential Landlord and Tenant Act that pertains to standard rental housing was enacted to govern the rental of dwelling units and the rights and obligations of landlord and tenant. The document can be downloaded for free.  There is currently no state agency that enforces provisions in the Act, and because most landlord/tenant relations are private transactions, disputes that arise between landlords and tenants are generally considered private matters. 

If you are seeking guidance concerning the Residential Landlord and Tenant Act you may wish to consult an attorney. Public members who are not represented by an attorney, may find it helpful to contact free community legal services:
