The Arizona rental agreements are for the use of conducting a transaction that involves a landlord allowing the tenant(s) to occupy commercial or residential space in trade for rental payments. The due date is usually structured to always be on the first (1st) of the month, and if the agreement was signed on another day the rent will usually be prorated. The landlord will typically ask the tenant to provide their financial credentials in order to verify that the individual(s) renting the space are able to pay the monthly amount.
