Over the past few years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of rental properties in Arizona, including short-term/vacation rentals. Here’s a quick rundown on what an association can require from a landlord regarding a tenant:

Associations are prohibited from requiring any owner to disclose to the association, any information regarding a tenant other than the following (A.R.S. 33-1260.01 / A.R.S. 33-1806.01) :

  • the name and contact information for any adults occupying the unit;
  • the time period of the lease, including the beginning and ending dates of the tenancy; and
  • a description and the license plate numbers of the tenants’ vehicles. If the association is an age-restricted community, the owner, the owner’s agent or the tenant must provide the association or its manager with government issued identification with a photograph of the tenant and confirmation that the tenant meets the association’s minimum age restriction.

In providing the information about the tenant, the association may charge the owner a fee of not more than $25.00. The fee may be charged for each new tenant but cannot be charged if the same tenants renew an existing lease.
