questions & answers

Question: What do you do if the owner of a mobile home park gails to maintain the streets? There are no sidewalks to walk so your forced to walk on the street where there are pot holes and cracks eveywhere. No only does ut poes a risk and damage to your cars but the fear of falling in the streets cuss of all the potholes and cracks. Who do we need to notify about this?

Answer: Under the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 11), mobile home park landlords are required to keep all common areas “in a clean and safe condition” (A.R.S. 33-1434). A mobile home park tenant who believes that the tenant’s landlord is failing to fulfill the landlord’s obligations under Arizona law may wish to provide the landlord with formal written notice of the problem by delivering to the landlord a signed and dated letter (1) describing the problem in detail and (2) requesting that it be fixed as soon as possible. As a general rule, this is always the suggested first step. If after receiving such notice, the landlord fails to respond or does nothing to fix the problem even after a reasonable period of time has passed, and if the tenant believes that the problem is a serious one, then the tenant has the option of petitioning for an administrative hearing on the matter by using the following form: https://housing.az.gov/sites/default/files/LTA%20Tenant%20Petition%20Packet%20%28rev%205-2016%29.pdf. For more information, the tenant may wish to contact the Arizona Department of Housing. Its website is https://housing.az.gov/.
