Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: I see repeatedly in agreements that Tenant is "responsible" for insuring the mobile home. The Act itself doesn't address this, and the agreements also state the Act supersedes the agreements. Is insuring the mobile home a "requirement" in Arizona, or a Tenant "responsibility" which a Tenant could choose to do or not do?

Answer: Under the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33 Chapter 11), a mobile home park’s statements of policy, which must be attached to all rental agreements, are required to include a statement affirming the fact that “insuring the mobile home is the tenant’s responsibility including fire department response insurance in unincorporated areas” (A.R.S. 33-1436(B)(7)).
