Arizona Leases and Rental Agreements Laws


The relationship between landlords and tenants is regulated at the state level, through lease and rental agreement laws. Typically, these laws place limits on how much of a security deposit a landlord may require and which types of discrimination are prohibited. Arizona lease and rental agreement laws do not require interest on deposits and deposits must be returned within 14 days of termination of lease.
