Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: I live in a senior mobile home park in Phoenix, AZ and own my home. The park owner is sending threatening notices that he is making a new rule that all tenants have to provide proof of homeowners insurance and minimum coverage shall include comprehensive liability, fire and windstorm insurance, and coverage for the removal of home in case of a total loss. None of us seniors can afford this. Wouldn't the AZ Landlord and Tenant Agreement Act, ARS 33-1452 - Rules and regulations, Item B pertain to this?

Answer: A.R.S. 33-1452(B) states that “Beginning May 31, 2016, a new rule adopted after the execution of the tenant’s initial rental agreement that imposes a reoccurring financial obligation on a tenant is not enforceable against the tenant.” If you would like to speak with an attorney about whether your landlord is or could soon be in violation of that or any other section of the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, there are links to free and low-cost legal services on this website (at http://www.azlawhelp.org/accessToJustice).
