Arizona Residential Lease Agreement
In the residential lease agreement, the tenant agrees to lease out a certain property for one year or longer. This agreement is the easiest and one of the most popular forms of lease agreements today. After the landlord conducts a credit check to confirm the tenant’s financial ability, the landlord will typically charge the tenant a security deposit (cost of one (1) months rent) to cover things such as damaged property, besides typical maintenance. During completion of the agreement, the landlord and tenant will agree on utilities such as:
- Heating/Air Conditioning
- Lawn Care
