Legislation was being heard in committee on Thursday would bar cities and towns from having local policies or oversight of disputes between landlords and tenants.

House Bill 2115, states that “regulation of the rights, obligations and remedies of landlords and tenants is a matter of statewide concern” and not subject “to further regulation by a county, city town or other political subdivision of this state.”

Currently, many towns and cities have their own regulations for landlord-tenant issues.

The city of Tempe passed regulations two decades ago, partially in response to advocates pushing the city to enact some additional protections for tenants. It was the first of its kind in the state.
