Renter's Guide to Glendale

Welcome to Glendale!

Historic, beautiful, and centrally located, “Arizona's Antique Capital” is just nine miles from Phoenix, the sixth-largest city in the US. Home to college football's annual Fiesta Bowl, Glendale is 10 times smaller than Phoenix, though it's plenty big in its own right.

Glendale's a little on the steamy side, with average June and July temperatures of around 100°F and about 294 sunny days per year. The city doesn't get much rain either – only about 9 inches per year, to be precise.

The dry weather makes for numerous excuses to visit Glendale’s many parks, which helped earn the city a spot as the 55th best city in the U.S. for parks from the Trust for Public Land. It’s also the 30th best city in the nation for recreation, according to WalletHub.

All of those recreation options, combined with its weather, quality of health care, and affordable housing, makes Glendale one of the top places in the country to retire. And it's within 30 miles of Scottsdale, Mesa, and Tempe, which couldn't be more convenient.

    Tips for Renting in Glendale

    Ready to relocate? Before you start packing, let's take a second to review the tenant laws in Glendale.

    Renters rights in Glendale follow the state laws of Arizona. One of these laws requires landlords to provide basic essential utilities – including air conditioning.

    If a landlord fails to do so, they can be held in breach of contract, and the tenant has the option to arrange for repairs themselves and deduct the costs from their rent. Or tenants can rent a hotel room until the problem is fixed, and the landlord will be responsible for the hotel bill.

    When moving in, your landlord can only charge the equivalent of a month-and-a-half’s rent as a security deposit. And when you move out, the landlord must return the deposit within 14 days, unless there was damage to the property.
