We Handle Difficult Arizona Landlord-Tenant Law Disputes- Arizona Eviction Attorney

The typical dispute between a landlord and a tenant revolves around the lease or rental agreement. The lease usually has the name of the landlord and tenant, the term of the lease, the amount of rent that must be paid, what happens during "default," the duties of the landlord and tenant with regard to maintenance, and what happens at the end of the term of the lease.

In short, a landlord-tenant agreement is based mainly upon two ideas - a landlord's responsibility to provide proper maintenance and meet housing codes, as well as a tenant's responsibility to pay rent and not damage the property.
