Answer: This is for informational purposes only, you may want to consult an attorney for legal advice. Under A.R.S. 33-1413. Terms and conditions of rental agreement: A. At the beginning of the tenancy, a signed, written rental agreement must be executed by the landlord or designated agent and a tenant. The rental agreement shall be executed in good faith by both parties and shall not provide for the waiver of any rights given to either party by other provisions of this chapter. B. If the landlord and tenant agree to the term of the rental agreement, the rental agreement may be for any term. If the landlord and tenant disagree on the term of the rental agreement, the rental agreement shall be for twelve months. The initial term of a rental agreement may be for less than twelve months if the reason is to ensure conformity with a standard anniversary date. Any written rental agreement shall have all blank spaces completed, and executed copies of the written rental agreement shall be furnished to all parties within ten days of execution. In other words, parties are not bound to the terms of a lease until it is agreed upon and signed. Without signing a lease, you are not bound to begin tenancy at the park.
