New Anti-Deficiency Laws Don’t Apply to Rental Properties

  The new amendments to Arizona’s anti-deficiency laws, effective January 1, 2015, do not apply to rental properties, meaning that anti-deficiency protection will still apply for rental properties.  The reason is that the amendments are designed to deny anti-deficiency protection to “spec” homes that are never occupied.  Occupied rental properties continue to meet the existing statutory requirement of “utilized as a dwelling.”
