An Arizona attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for four weeks. It sounds like you're asking about an attorney who would handle your matter on a contingency basis (you mention payment upon settlement). It's difficult to say whether a firm would handle something like... Read more »
We’ve rented the house for three years. We moved out at the beginning of June and our lease went through the end of June. We let the landlord know they re-rented it and a new tenant moved in on June 18. I asked about the rent being prorated and they said they didn’t have to prorate it. What are... Read more »

They can't double dip: If they charge you for a full month, they have to make sure the premises are available to you the entirety of that month.
I am not sure if I should sign the waiver because I haven't had time or money to get legal advice. I already filed an answer denying the complaint saying I went to court for this incident.
answered on Apr 28, 2022
While all cases are different, the waiver is a standard procedure in Arizona if the parties are in communication. It provides an additional time period beyond the normal Answer deadline for a party to file an answer.
Waiving service saves costs and gives the person answering 60 to respond... Read more »

A commercial landlord can lock out a tenant without first obtaining a court order. This option is often specifically reserved in many commercial leases. It is also one of the remedies allowed by ARS 33-361.

In Arizona your property manager can handle evictions of Arizona tenants. It is not required that the property owner be an Arizona resident.

answered on Dec 5, 2021
The power of attorney automatically ended when your father passed away. If you have been appointed executor or personal representative or administrator of his estate then, yes, you have the authority to enforce any existing lease, including demanding rent pursuant to the lease. Or you can evict... Read more »
They asked to stay for a couple of days, they kicked dad out. Filed a Restraining order.
Can dad evict in Az?
He owns the trailer, rents the lot.
They are unwelcome guests
Using illegal substances
answered on Aug 25, 2021
Dad has two options. He can call the police and see if the police will remove them as trespassers. Or he can evict per the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. If he must evict, I recommend that he consult with an attorney familiar with residential evictions.

Yes, it is not uncommon to amortize a loan over 20 or 30 years but provide for a balloon payment after 3-10 years. This allows a buyer to purchase and, if needed, provides time to build equity and improve his or her credit so it may be possible to refinance conventionally when the balloon payment... Read more »

MY HOA refuse to pick up my mail, which includes my monthly dues. This has been going on for 4 months now. All mail was sent certified return receipt. There was an ADRE case on HOA refusing to pick up mail, and who is liable. I am awaiting response.

You should not be using certified mail unless the HOA Rules require it. The HOA has no obligation to be available all the times to sign a receipt to the mailman. Send all checks regular mail or hand deliver them, and when they cash them, you will have a bank record of some type. You knew you... Read more »

answered on Jun 15, 2020
The homeowners' divorce does not impair your rights under the lease and is not, by itself, grounds for lease termination. So long as you pay your rent, you should be allowed to complete your lease term unless your lease contains provisions that would allow the owners to terminate early.

Generally, in landlord/tenant cases, you sue the landlord (or property owner) - not the property management company or property manager. The property manager typically is not the property owner and merely the landlord's agent who at all times is acting on behalf of the landlord. If the... Read more »
