Unless there's a 72-hour rule in Arizona, there's nothing illegal about about holding a rent check for two weeks. Checks are usually good for six months after the date on them. You might want to ask your landlady for a receipt when you give her your rent check, just so she can't say that you didn't pay the rent and then try to evict you for non-payment.
: I live in Arizona at an apartment. I am prepaid and each month the landlord holds my rent check for one to two weeks. She says she "just wanted to be sure I really meant to pay rent this month." Isn't that illegal? I thought 72 hours was the longest a check could be held.
