Arizona law makes landlords tell tenants of foreclosures

PHOENIX — Renters no longer have to worry about being surprised when their
home is repossessed by a bank now that a new law requiring landlords to give
them notice has been signed.

Gov. Jan Brewer signed the tenant notice bill late last week amid a flurry of
action on laws passed by the legislature in the session that ended June 14.

House Bill 2281 amends the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act to
require owners to provide written notice to tenants within five business days of
receiving a notice of trustee’s sale. The law previously only required notice if
a provision was in the lease.

Republican Rep. Steve Smith of Maricopa said he sponsored the bill after
renters complained they were tossed out by banks without notice.
