Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: The ownership of the mobile home park is requiring that I pay to repair a sewage line attached to my mobile home that has deteriorated over the years due to no fault of my own. Is this legal, since I own only the mobile home and not the lot it sits on.

Answer: The Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act defines a mobile home space as “a parcel of land for rent that has been designed to accommodate a mobile home and provide the required sewer and utility connections” (A.R.S. 33-1409). A mobile home park landlord is expressly required to “furnish outlets for electric, water and sewer services” (A.R.S. 33-1434). You may wish to draw this to the landlord’s attention.
