Leases

What makes my leases the “BEST”? 

  • I draft ALL of my leases to be favorable to the landlord.
  • I have been drafting Arizona leases and rental agreement forms for 30+ years and I have NEVER had a client tell me they were unhappy with the final product.

I offer several types of lease forms:

“REGULAR” RESIDENTIAL LEASE AGREEMENT*

  • The two Lease forms below are the most commonly used Lease forms.
  • These Lease forms, the rental property, and the tenants are subject to the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act.
  • These Lease forms are used by a landlord renting a “regular” residential property to one or more tenants.
  • These Lease forms can be used for a fixed-term tenancy (e.g., 1-year, 6-months, etc.) or a month-to-month tenancy.
  • For individuals who own and manage their own rental properties, I offer two types of lease forms:

* A “Regular” Residential Rental (or Lease) Agreement is subject to the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. This is the most common type of lease form. This is used when a person (landlord) rents to another person (tenant) on a month-to-month basis or on a fixed-term basis (e.g., 6 months, 1 year, etc.).

** A “Short-Term Rental Agreement” IS NOT subject to the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. Although becoming more prevalent in recent years, this is still a “special” type of rental agreement that can ONLY be used if the necessary criteria are met. This form is used when a person (owner) rents to another person (guest) for a short period of time (e.g., days or weeks). This form is used for vacation rentals and/or recreational lodging. This form is typically used when offering short-term rental property on VRBO, Airbnb, FlipKey, HomeAway, and similar sites, but can also be used without using any online platform.

*** Many landlords attempt to limit liability by “transferring” title to the rental property by signing a quit claim deed from themself, as the owner, to the LLC. That transaction, as stated, violates the “Arizona Fraudulent Transfer Act” (Arizona Revised Statutes, Sections 44-1001 thru 44-1010). It is also a “transfer,” which means the lender that made the loan for the property can call the loan immediately due and payable, unless the lender agreed (in writing) to the transfer BEFORE the transfer was made. Also, a “transfer” terminates the title insurance issued to the owner/landlord when the rental property was purchased, unless the owner buys an “endorsement.” There may also be tax consequences as a result of the “transfer.”
