Thanks for everyone's help! Yes, you are right and this was confirmed with the Arizona Federation of Housing Counselors: In the absence of any termination clause or one stating what would happen in a default situation, AZ state law allows the tenant to give a 30-day notice and an explanation of why the move is necessary (e.g., job related reasons), even if the lease is not month to month. If anyone needs, also, a copy of the Arizona Landlord Tenant Act can be found at


: In absence of any lease provisions, state law prevails. This usually means that you are responsible for the balance of the contract (rent, utilities, maintenance and possibly advertising costs). Do you have anything in writing from them that said that you could get out of your lease early with no further consequences? If you do, you're off the hook. Otherwise, its your word against theirs.
