Arizona Lease Agreements

Arizona

TurboTenant’s Arizona lease agreement is a testament to meticulous drafting and thorough review by Arizona’s finest lawyers and landlords. The document is designed to ensure landlords remain compliant with state laws while providing protection as they rent out their properties. Let us delve into the framework of this essential leasing tool.

Section 1 – Personalization of Your Lease

In Section 1, landlords personalize the agreement with specific details about the lease. This includes participant names, the rental amount, and utility responsibilities. The lease creation process through TurboTenant allows for this information to be seamlessly integrated. The lease begins with a summary table to provide an overview, and subsequent sections elaborate on policies like smoking, utilities, and key management.

Key points in Section 1 include:

  • Additional Provisions: Here, landlords can outline property-specific rules or local clauses. Legal counsel is recommended to review these additional provisions.
  • Lost Key Policy: Tenants must shoulder the cost of rekeying if they fail to return all keys at the end of their tenancy.

Section 2 – Arizona-Specific Clauses

Section 2 is aligned with Arizona law and editable with the use of our Advanced Editor feature. Please note that changes made to Sections 2 and 3 of our leases may bring you out of compliance with state and/or local laws and consulting with an attorney on any changes is always recommended. . Noteworthy clauses within this section are:

  • Late Fees (Section 2.1): Rent is due on the 1st, with a late fee of 5% of the unpaid rent amount chargeable if not paid by 5:00 pm on the 5th.
  • Occupancy Limits and Guests (Section 2.5): The agreement specifies who can occupy the property and provides guidelines for guest visits.

  • Landlord Tenant Act: A copy of this act must be attached to the lease.
