Renters’ rights spelled out in tenant act

When entering and exiting a lease, it is important to know what tenants’ rights are in Arizona, especially when it comes to security deposits.

According to the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, a landlord cannot demand or receive a security deposit in excess of one and a half months’ rent unless the tenant agrees to it.

When a tenant moves in, the landlord must give the tenant a signed copy of the lease, a move-in form to list existing damage to the unit and written notification that the tenant may be present at the move-out inspection.

When it’s time to move out, the landlord must provide the tenant an itemized list of all deductions from the security deposit and any remaining amount. This must be done within 14 days, excluding Saturdays, Sundays or legal holidays, of the move-out date. If the landlord fails to comply, the tenant may be entitled to recover the security deposit and damages in an amount equal to twice the amount wrongfully withheld.

For more information, consult the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. For members who think their rights have been violated, call the 56th FW legal office at (623) 856-6901 to make an appointment to speak with a legal assistance attorney.
