Arizona real estate and the laws governing it have been in a state of flux as a result of the burst of the Arizona real estate bubble. As a result, individuals and families attempting to navigate the often muddied waters of short sales, foreclosures, and deficiency judgments need to be aware of the new rules, laws, and regulations affecting them. Further, for those individuals now finding themselves in a rental situation, they too need to understand their rights under the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (ARLTA) to help ensure they fully comprehend the Contract they sign.

Also important is understanding how the commercial real estate market has been impacted by the legal and financing landscape. Whether you are the owner of a building trying to negotiate with a lender or a commercial tenant trying to negotiate with a landlord, knowing your rights is imperative. This is especially true when dealing with promissory notes or lease agreements secured by personal guarantees.
