Forms and Notices




Due to the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), on July 16, 2020, Governor Douglas A. Ducey issued Executive Order 2020-49, which continues to permit tenants to qualify for delay in enforcement of eviction actions in certain circumstances. Tenants may use the available “Tenant Checklist – Actions a Tenant Must Take Based on Executive Order 2020-49” as a guide. 


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. 

 

Landlords can use the “notice” forms on this page to notify their tenants of failures to pay rent or breaches of the rental agreement. Giving the tenant a notice is usually required before the landlord can file an eviction action. Other forms on this page can be used by landlords or tenants for filing or defending an eviction action. There are also forms for a judgment in an eviction action, for a writ of restitution, or to vacate or modify a judgment that the court has already entered. Several of the forms on this page include instructions for their use. 

The most recent forms, designated with the word “NEW,” relate to COVID-19 issues:

  • To delay eviction until October 31, 2020, tenants must (1) notify or renotify their landlord of ongoing financial hardship and provide supporting documentation, (2) request a payment plan, (3) acknowledge that the contractual terms of the lease remain in effect and (4) provide supporting documentation by August 21, 2020, or as soon thereafter as possible, that they have applied for rental assistance (see Notice to Landlord form below). Tenants may use the available “Tenant Checklist – Actions a Tenant Must Take Based on Executive Order 2020-49” as a guide.
  • Through August 21, 2020 a tenant’s grounds for eviction enforcement delay may be based on COVID-19 circumstances regardless of loss of income (Notice to Landlord – 08/21/20). After August 21, the sole circumstance for delay of an eviction action is financial hardship related to the pandemic, and not due to illness or the need to quarantine alone. (Notice to Landlord – 10/31/20).
  • Landlords should use (1) "CARES Act 30-Day Notice for Failure to Pay Rent" before filing an eviction action, if applicable, (2) "Attestation of Plaintiff" at the time of filing, and (3) "Consent Order for Conditional Dismissal" after filing an eviction action, if applicable.
