Arizona has two different acts to govern the rights, obligations and relations between tenants and property owners. One covers standard housing, while the other covers mobile homes

  • The Residential Landlord and Tenant Act that pertains to standard rental housing was enacted to govern the rental of dwelling units and the rights and obligations of landlord and tenant. The document can be downloaded for free. There is currently no state agency that enforces provisions in the Act, and because most landlord/tenant relations are private transactions, disputes that arise between landlord and tenants are generally considered private matters. Links to the document in a .pdf format and a Word format are provided in the Document links here.
  • The Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (revised July 3. 2015). You can get a free copy of the Act from the Arizona Department of Housing in Phoenix (see the blue pages in your telephone book), or you can look up the Act in the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S. §§ 33-1301 to 33-1381), which is available in the reference sections of most public libraries or law libraries in the state.
