Answer: Under the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, landlords are required to do certain things. When landlords fail to do those things even after their tenants have provided them with written notice, it sometimes becomes possible for tenants to terminate their rental agreements and move. You should speak with an attorney to determine what your present and future rights and responsibilities are.
