Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about your mother's difficulties.
Even if the Landlord is refusing to grant the extension, the Court would most likely grant it under the circumstances. Also and more importantly, your mother does not have to move out in 30 days.
There is no self-remedy to eviction actions in Arizona. This means that the Landlord cannot force your mother out, change the locks or shut off her utilities in order to force her out without a Court Order. The Landlord must use the Court system to accomplish the eviction. At the expiration of the 30-day notice, the Landlord must file eviction action in Court and serve your mother with the Summons and a copy of the complaint so that she can respond to it. Then a hearing would be scheduled where the Court would hear from both sides. The Court would then make a decision. If your mother is ordered evicted, she can then request for an extension to gather her things. For more information on the eviction process in Arizona, click here.
Goodluck with your case,
