Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Been in same mobile home park for 4 years, living in our travel trailer. We've always paid 1 yr. in advance to receive a substantial discount due to tiered pricing. In June, we're usually offered a pre-reservation discount, but must pay the future year in advance. We've usually declined due to lack of $$ in June, but agree we will be renewing when our rental agreement is up. This year they told us they had a prospective new tenant and if we didn't renew w/1 yr advance payment...we would lose our spot. Is this legal?

Answer: No. According to the mobile home landlord/tenant act "the landlord may not terminate or refuse to renew a tenancy withour good cause". I do not think that not paying one year in advance would constitute good cause. The relevant provision of the act can be found at ARS-33-1496 B which can be accessed at http://www.azsos.gov/
