Bill makes landlords tell tenants of foreclosures

PHOENIX (AP) -

The Arizona Senate has joined the House in giving final approval to a bill requiring landlords to notify tenants when their property enters foreclosure.

House Bill 2281 amends the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act to require the owner to provide written notice to tenants within 5 business days of receiving a notice of trustee's sale. The law previously only required notice if a provision was in the lease.

The bill is sponsored by Rep. Steve Smith of Maricopa. He says renters complained landlords gave them no notice before they were told they must move because of a foreclosure.

The House voted 54-2 to pass the bill last month. The bill passed the Senate on a 28-0 vote Thursday.

It now goes to Gov. Jan Brewer's desk for her consideration.
