Question: My tenant is claiming that they have Coronavirus. Do I need to go into his unit to make repairs?

Answer: We are in unprecedented times. The conservative answer is that the Arizona Residential Landlord and
Tenant requires that you make repairs as they come up. However, due to the emergency orders put in place by the President of the United States as well as the Governor of Arizona and numerous mayors, there is an argument that a landlord need only to enter for essential services, such as to fix immediate health and safety issues and to make sure that heating, cooling and water work. Basically, the things that a resident isn’t allowed to fix, the landlord must still maintain.
