That's a good question. In some states, such as California, an owner is able to send a Notice of Nonresponsibility in order to limit a claimant's right to file a mechanics lien on the property for work done at the behest of someone other than the property owner. The Arizona Revised Statutes do provide for such a document in Arizona - but only in relation to work performed on mining claims, under § 33-989 and 990. However, while a Notice of Nonresponsibility might not be made pursuant to some statutory provision, that doesn't necessarily mean the property is unaffected by the fact that work is being done for the tenant rather than the owner. When work is being performed for a tenant, there are always complexities that will arise when attempting to lien - and zlien discusses that topic in this article: What Happens to Mechanics Lien Rights If My Project is a Tenant Improvement?
