The Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (ARLTA) governs month-to-month lease agreements. According to §33-1321, the landlord cannot charge more than one and one-half month’s rent as a security deposit. However, the tenant may voluntarily pay more as a security deposit. The security deposit must return the security deposit and an itemized description of why the landlord is keeping part of the security deposit within 14 days of move out, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, or legal holidays.
If you are a landlord or property manager, you must understand Arizona state laws, which disclosures you must provide (such as bedbug disclosure), and what you should do if the new tenant does not pay rent. Seeking legal advice regarding an Arizona residential lease agreement can be very beneficial.
According to §33-1375, the notice period for lease termination of an Arizona month-to-month lease agreement is 30 days. The 30 days notice must be given before the date listed in the notice. It must be a written notice.
