Customer Question

We have a lease on a house which we are terminating because we are no longer taking care of our grandchildren. We are going home! Our lease reads that we can break it if we pay two months extra as penalty or the maximum allowable by law (Arizona) whichever is less. The owner has a renter ready to move in. Our question: What is the maximun allowable by Arizona law under these circumstances? Thanks for your help!
