I am in Arizona. my residential lease is with an llc. does the llc have to hire an attorney to represent themselves in a lease dispute or can a partner represent the llc in court?
Hi,

Thank you for your question.

Generally, a corporation has to hire a lawyer to represent it in court. However, if there is a lease dispute or eviction, this will trigger the Arizona Rules of Procedure for Evictions and Justice Court rules which allow a business entity such as an LLC to represent itself through one of its duly authorized members.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. Please also kindly consider rating my answer positively so that I am compensated by the website for my work on your question. Rating positively does not cause an additional charge and does not prevent us from further discussing your questions.

Best Regards,

to be clear: the landlord Ilene can represent the LLC but her brother who is not a part of the LLC cannot,,,it must be a member?

The law states that it must be a duly authorized officer or member of the corporation. If her brother is a manager or officer of the LLC, then he may represent the LLC. It's a very relaxed rule.
