The Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act states the following about landlords having the right to access the dwelling unit during tenancy:
Tenant May Not Withhold Consent
The tenant shall not unreasonably withhold consent to the landlord to enter into the dwelling unit in order to inspect the premises, make necessary or agreed repairs, decorations, alterations or improvements, supply necessary or agreed services or exhibit the dwelling unit to prospective or actual purchasers, mortgagees, tenants, workmen or contractors.
If the tenant notifies the landlord of a service request or a request for maintenance as prescribed in the section Arizona Tenant to Maintain Fit Premises the notice from the tenant constitutes permission from the tenant for the landlord to enter the dwelling unit for the sole purpose of acting on the service or maintenance request and the tenant waives receipt of any separate or additional access notice that may be required herein.
The landlord may enter the dwelling unit without consent of the tenant in case of emergency.
2 Day Notice Required
The landlord shall not abuse the right to access or use it to harass the tenant. Except in case of emergency or if it is impracticable to do so, the landlord shall give the tenant at least two days’ notice of the landlord’s intent to enter and enter only at reasonable times.
Note: The landlord has no other right of access except by court order and as permitted by the sections Arizona Tenant Failure to Maintain Rental Property and Arizona Tenant Abandonment of Property, or if the tenant has abandoned or surrendered the premises.
