    Eviction Actions

    An Eviction Action is a claim filed by a landlord against a tenant for possession of a rental property. These lawsuits are designed to resolve cases in which a tenant has breached a rental agreement. The total amount that may be claimed in an Eviction Action filed in a Justice Court is $10,000.00, not including interest, costs and awarded attorneys’ fees.

    Eviction Actions must be filed in the jurisdiction in which the rental property is located.

    To prepare an Eviction Action through AZTurboCourt please visit: AZTurboCourt Eviction Action. This website walks users through the process of creating documents required for Eviction Actions. AZTurboCourt charges an application fee for this service and additional filing fees may be charged by the court at the time of filing.

    If you would prefer to print forms for free without receiving assistance with filling out the forms you may use the forms below.

    The forms available on this site are generic and may be accepted by courts statewide. Please note that each court might have their own preferred forms. You can visit AZCourtHelp.org for more information about court-specific forms.

    Based on recommendations from the Arizona Commission on Access to Justice’s Self-Represented Litigants in Limited Jurisdiction Courts Workgroup, improvements are being made to the Self-Service Center Eviction webpage, notices, instructions, and forms. New revised documents are now available to provide more information for both tenant and landlord. Also, visit the “Legal Info Sheets” that provide step-by-step instructions on various notices such as: non-payment of rent, a 5-day notice for health and safety, after an eviction judgment, and others. Please tell us what you think about the revised documents by scrolling down to the bottom and clicking on the “Feedback” link.
