Answer: You may want to contact an attorney. There are links to free and low-cost legal services on this website (at http://www.azlawhelp.org/accessToJustice). Mobile home park tenants should have written leases. A.R.S. 33-1413(A) states that “At the beginning of the tenancy, a signed, written rental agreement must be executed by the landlord or designated agent and a tenant ... The rental agreement shall be for a specific period ...” while A.R.S. 33-1413(H) states that “On expiration of a written rental agreement for a specified term or written renewal of a rental agreement, tenancy is on a month-to-month basis unless the landlord, its designated agent or the tenant requests a new written rental agreement. If the landlord and tenant agree to the term of the rental agreement, the rental agreement may be for any term. If the landlord and tenant disagree on the term of the rental agreement, the rental agreement shall be for twelve months.”
