ARS §33-1377: Evictions are summary proceedings, meaning that there is not discovery, disclosures, trial by jury, counterclaims, cross-claims, or third-party complaints. A forcible detainer complaint is filed and a hearing is scheduled no less than three days or more than six days later. More often than not, the tenant does not bother showing up at the scheduled hearing, though the landlord or landlord’s counsel must still show. At the hearing, the judge may enter judgment for either side. The prevailing party is entitled to make a claim for attorney’s fees, costs, and any sustainable damages.

Easements are the right of another to use a landowner’s property without consent. Easements were not generally geographically well-defined in the early days of Arizona country. To this day, we come across easements that have ‘always been that way’ and have never been bounded in any way by a formal survey or restrictions. Questions of whether or not a person can erect a fence or gate over an easement are often fact-specific inquiries and the answer can vary depending upon the circumstances of a particular case. Additionally, easements can be perfected by a non-landowner’s continuous use over a period of time. The claims and defenses available to either party in an easement dispute often depend upon how artfully the Complaint is drafted. The attorneys at Holland Law Group can guide you through the often-complicated process of defining or defending an easement dispute.

Tax Lien Foreclosures
Tax liens are a creature of statute, which means that the courts are to apply a stricter standard to the foreclosure process to ensure that every condition and issue is properly addressed—substantial compliance is not acceptable. The letter of the law must be followed in a tax lien foreclosure. For this reason, tax lien foreclosures are somewhat of a specialty. Having done more than a hundred tax lien foreclosures, the attorneys at Holland Law Group have extensive knowledge and experience in this area of practice.
