Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: I am a current mobile home owner in mesa. My husband and I have maintained our trailer to the standards put forth in the lease. We are very disappointed at our park owners for allowing an owner to treat the park as a place of business which is prohibited in the park lease. How or what are our legal means of attempting to see the problems corrected.

Answer: THis is for informational purposes only; you may want to contact an attorney for legal advice. Under the Arizona Mobile Home Park Landlord/Tenant Act, A.R.S. 33-1454. Tenant to occupy as a dwelling unit; authority to sublet: A. Unless otherwise agreed, the tenant shall occupy the tenant's mobile home only as a dwelling unit and may sublet, upon written agreement with the park management. This means that a tenant can only conduct business with an agreement with the landlord. If the lease prohibits this kind of behavior, and it affects your enjoyment of the park: Under A.R.S. 33-1471. Noncompliance by the landlord: A. Except as provided in this chapter, if there is a material noncompliance by the landlord with the rental agreement, the rules and regulations or statements of policy, the tenant may deliver a written notice to the landlord specifying the acts and omissions constituting the breach and that the rental agreement will terminate upon a date not less than thirty days after receipt of the notice if the breach is not remedied in fourteen days. It sounds like the landlord allowing this constitutes a breach of park policy. I suggest you try writing them a letter as described in the statute above.
