Eviction Process With Mosaic Properties

The Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act (AZRLTA), available here, contains all the statutes and rules governing property management in Arizona, including the Eviction Process and we know it from cover to cover.  Our extensive knowledge, experience with case law and continuing education of the ever changing statutes helps us protect you.

Eviction Process

Our Rent Collection process is quick and efficient.  If a tenant does not pay their rent on or before the 1st of the month, it is considered late on the 2nd.  Late fees begin to accrue.

If a tenant has not paid by the 5th of the month, the 5 Day Notice of Non Payment is sent certified mail to the tenant.  This begins the Eviction Process. That gives the tenant 5 Days mailing time and 5 Days Notice time to get their payment to the office  in certified funds, for all accrued costs; rent, tax, late fees, notice fees, etc.

If they do not, on the 16th of the month, everything is sent to our eviction attorney to begin the eviction.  The court date is usually set within 5 – 7 business days, depending on that cities court schedule and case volume.  At the eviction proceeding is the last chance the tenant has to appear and pay in full, including all court and lawyer fees.  If they do not pay or appear in court, the eviction is processed and the tenant has 5 calendar days to vacate the property.

In the rare case the tenant does not vacate the house within the 5 days, we issue what is called a Writ Of Restitution.  That goes to the city constable who contacts us to set a date and time to meet at the property and remove the tenant.  We have a locksmith on hand at the time and change all locks to protect your property.

Last step of an eviction is if personal property is left behind.  We have to hold said property for a period of time and allow a one time, scheduled meeting with the tenant to allow them to retrieve their belongings.  Once the house is vacant and cleaned up, we can re-list and find that great tenant you’ve been looking for.

The total cost to process an eviction through the courts averages $300 – $800. For under $100 annually or $8 per month, you can protect yourself from unforeseen costs.
