There are many issues that may lead a landlord or tenant to seek legal information. This guide provides references to some of the statutes and resources that address most common landlord and tenant matters. If you need additional research assistance, reference librarians at the ASU Ross-Blakley Law Library can assist you in identifying information sources to use in finding an answer; we cannot, however, offer legal advice or interpretation of legal information.
If you have a legal matter, speaking to an attorney is advised. A list of local agencies offering legal assistance or providing referrals to attorneys can be found below, often at no or reduced cost to those who qualify.
The Residential Landlord Tenant Act can be found in the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S. §§ 33-301 to 33-1381). This act describes many of the rights and responsibilities of both the landlord and the tenant and remedies.
