If this is a landlord -tenant issue, I would consult with a real estate attorney who specializes in landlord-tenant issues. If you are considering a claim for illness caused by the poor living conditions, I would speak with an attorney who specializes in toxic tort cases.

Generally, landlords are able to deduct late charges from security deposit funds after a tenant moves, and they don't need to give any notice that the late fee is owed it because the lease indicates that it is owed. ARS s. 33-1321(D) ("security may be applied to the payment of all rent,...Read more »
I recently learned (I have proof) that on the day of the sale of my rental property (single family home), the new owner completed a new lease and forged my name. I have not had a true lease in effect since 05/31/2014.
The first step is to have your original lease--the one you signed--reviewed by a real estate attorney. It may automatically renew by its terms. You may have the right to terminate. Once your attorney has reviewed the lease that you agreed to, he or she will be able to let you know your legal...Read more »
The issue is that the tax rate is 1.5% and the rental company takes the other 1% as an admin fee. They don’t disclose a monthly admin fee in the lease or tell you that the chandler tax is only 1.5%. I think this is deceptive but they are doing this to hundreds of renters. I’m also not sure... Read more »

You might be able to evict her per ARS 33-1378. However, if she has been living in the home and paying rent she is probably a month to month tenant and the better procedure would be to evict her for non-payment of rent using a standard 5 day notice.
I am facing an eviction and was wondering if the notice or court summons has to be delivered in person? Can they just be left at the door? Don't they have to show proof that the tenant actually received the notice or summons? Thanks.
In Arizona it is a common practice to serve by posting the property or dropping the summons and complaint by the front door. If you believe that service was improper, you can contest on this basis. If the Judge agrees, he may require service to be made again. But this is unlikely to be of help...Read more »
Yes, this can be possible. It depends upon what was litigated in the eviction action. In the eviction proceeding the landlord may have obtained a judgment only for possession, rent and legal fees. The landlord might still make a demand upon you for additional money if he has other claims, such as...Read more »
I would speak with your landlord or property manager to make arrangements in advance for a move out on December 1, 2017. By delaying your move out, you run the risk of the landlord charging you rent for the month of December. The landlord could bring a legal action against you to collect...Read more »

If the court orders an eviction, you will have 5 days to vacate. If you are not out in 5 days, a writ of restitution will be issued and send to the...Read more »
This sounds attractive but you should investigate the prospective tenant and the reasons for the offer very carefully before accepting. Sometimes this kind of an offer is legitimate, but sometimes it is an attempt to hide assets from creditor or a bankruptcy court. If so, this could result in a...Read more »

Assuming that the damages the owner found were present at the time of the walk through, and assuming also that the management contract contains nothing to the contrary, the management company should make good this loss to the owner.
