Question: I used to work for the park I live in,they paid my rent. I was let go mid month, i contacted the managers boss,On November 2nd. the manager mailed out a 7-day eviction notice to me for non-payment of rent. I am awaiting disability to come in,i can only work 20hrs. max a week. I was not given any time to set-up a payment plan as others here have been able to do. The manager locks the door when she see's me coming to her office. I own the trailer but rent the spot. The eviction notice was not signed by anyone. Is this a Legal notice? I feel this is Retaliation!! what can I do ??

Answer: A mobile home park landlord may provide written notice of the landlord’s intent to terminate the rental agreement for nonpayment of rent if the rent is not paid within seven days (A.R.S. 33-1476(E)) by any means “reasonably calculated to inform” the tenant (A.R.S. 33-1412). It does not need to be signed or delivered in any particular way. If, after the seven days have passed, the tenant still has not paid the rent, then the landlord may go to court, file an eviction complaint against the tenant, then send to the tenant a copy of that complaint along with a summons stating when the eviction hearing will take place. If you believe that the manner in which you have been treated by your landlord is in violation of an existing agreement between you and the landlord or in any other way unlawful, then you may wish to speak with an attorney.
