My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Arizona
I recently broke a lease in Missouri after only two weeks. I currently live in Arizona and have received a bill for over $4,000 for abandoning the apartment. The apartment was far poorer than the "show apartment" I was shown. Regardless, I want to know the likelihood of a collection agency gaining judgement against me to garner wages/bank account. Should I try writing back to the apartment complex explaining my situation, or would that be useless? Do I have to be served in person, or might I receive summons by mail? Thanks.
