Real Estate: Arizona/Eviction Notice


Mr. Iannelli.

Thank you for your time.  I have a Arizona renter in a single family residence.  Her contract expired a few months ago so she is renting on a month-to-month basis.  I understand that if I wish to have her move out, I need to give her a 30 day notice that her contract will not be renewed. At the end of that 30 day period, if she has not moved out, do I need to give her a 5 day notice before commencing eviction procedures, or is the original 30 day notice sufficient?

If they have not moved after the 30 days, they would become a holdover tenant.  
Tenant Holdover: If the tenant remains in possession without the landlord’s consent after expiration of the term of the rental agreement or its termination, the landlord may bring an action for possession and if the tenant’s holdover is willful and not in good faith the landlord, in addition, may recover an amount equal to not more than two months’ periodic rent or twice the actual damages sustained by the landlord, whichever is greater. (Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 33-1375(C))

You would go to court and fill out the forms for tenant holdover.  This usually happens quickly.
