There are no ARS (Arizona revised statutes) that deal with who is responsible for insurance/repairs, etc. You will not find that in the ARS's

It is, rather, common law (this is the form of law we use in the US). The rule is that the life tenant is responsible for paying all property taxes during his/her lifetime and thatordinary repairs, upkeep and maintenance: these are the responsibility of the life tenant; that person lives in the house and it is her/his obligation to preserve the property;

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

Wow! Thank you for such a quick response. I am an attorney in New York. The girlfriend is Not paying the fire insurance nor the hazard ins. She just cut down multiple trees that were just for shade and not causing an issue. How easy or difficult would it be to evict her from the premises? Is my cousin open to being sued if something happens and the life estate tenant is not living up to her responsibilities? How does one find an attorney in Yuma who has experience in these matters?
