Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Landlord wants to evict me do too late payment of rent though he knows that I get paid on the 1st cuz of Social Security but wants the money on the 21st and is imposing several late fees monthly and trying to evict me is there a law governing that he should prorate my rent due to the fact that I don't get my Social Security check until the first of the month are they don't they have to work with Social Security if they approve you in the park to rent cuz we purchased our home

Answer: As a general rule, rent payments are due on the first of each month unless the landlord and the tenant agree otherwise (A.R.S. 33-1314). So the question is whether you previously agreed to pay rent on the 21st or if the demand that you pay on the 21st is a newly established requirement by the landlord to which you have not yet agreed. There are no separate laws that require a landlord to wait until after the tenant receives SSI before the landlord may start charging late fees – although a landlord may only charge late fees that were specified in a written agreement (A.R.S. 33-1368(B)).
