Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: The landlord shut off our water at 3 in the afternoon and said it was only for a half hour to fix a small leak. It is now 8 am the following day and our water is still off with no word from our landlord. What can I do or call to get this issue remedied

Answer: An important first step in such situations is to document the problem in writing by sending the landlord a signed and dated letter (or email or text if necessary) describing the problem in detail and requesting that the problem be fixed as soon as possible. If a tenant’s access to water (or other any other essential utility) is not restored within a reasonable period of time, then the tenant obtains other rights, but only if the tenant has already formally notified the landlord (and kept a copy of that notice for their own records).
