If you rent out a house or an apartment in Arizona, the law that applies to you is called the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act (ARLTA). 

This law lists all of the obligations a tenant has. If the tenant is not complying with one or more of these obligations, the landlord has remedies. But the landlord can’t just kick out the tenant, change the locks, or turn off the utilities. The landlord must follow all the steps the law says must be taken. It is important to know what ARLTA says so landlords and tenants know how to proceed.
