Phoenix, AZ asked in Landlord - Tenant for Arizona

Q: can my landlord ban me from using the storage room in my backyard just because the door was left open.

Only my items are stored in the storage and this is the 2nd term on my lease Ive been using the storage the entire time Ive been living there going on 2yrs now but she said because the door to the storage was left open and if shes sees it left open again she will be forced to empty it and lock it up to where we can no longer use it

***it is not a common area its a single family home and in the lease it doesn't say anything specific as far as the storage room not being included in the space i Rent its just says that I am renting the property located at (my address)**

A: Is this a one family house, or is this a common area (even if no one is presently using it now)? Have you been given use or possession of the room under your lease?

Can't give you an answer without knowing more. It's also important to see what's in the lease.
