Tips for Renting in Gilbert

It may be hot, but you’ll love calling Gilbert home. First, though, let's take a minute to get familiar with the local tenant laws.

Arizona has laws prohibiting rent control, which means a landlord has the right to increase the rent once the lease has expired. The state also considers transactions between landlord and tenant to be private and generally will not handle disputes.

If you lose any vital utilities and your landlord isn’t taking care of the issue, you have the right to hire a licensed contractor for up to $300, or less than half your rent, whichever is greater. You can then deduct the expenses from your next month’s payment.

Leases may vary, so make sure you take the time to read yours prior to signing.
