Question: Teres minor repairs that the mobile home park maintenance has supposed to have had done there have not done the repairs with any reasonable time is it okay for me to have a higher my own maintenance person to have those maintenance items fixed and then charge the park 4 irepairs
Answer: Under the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 11), a mobile home park landlord is required to “make all repairs and do whatever is necessary to put and keep the premises in a fit and habitable condition” (A.R.S. 33-1434). If a landlord has failed to make required repairs, then the tenant should write and deliver to the landlord a signed and dated letter describing the nature of the problem(s) and requesting that the problem(s) be fixed as soon as possible. If, after a reasonable period of time has passed, the required repairs still are not made, then the tenant has option of notifying the landlord in writing of the tenant’s intention to make the repairs himself at the landlord’s expense (A.R.S. 33-1473). If the landlord fails to make the repairs with 20 days of receiving this notice from the tenant – or as soon thereafter as is necessary in the case of an emergency – then the tenant may have the work done by a licensed contractor and, after submitting to the landlord an itemized statement and a waiver of lien, deduct from the tenant’s next rent payment the actual and reasonable cost of that work (again A.R.S. 33-1473).
