Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: I live in a mobile home park. They own the meters so they have a statement along with the lot rent. My question is the do show the ending and beginning usage and the rate. But they also charge a 20.00 service charge and they have a tax on the usage. But CAN THEY TAX A SERVICE ALONG WITH THE TAX FOR THE USE OF ELECTRICITY. ALONG with a water tax on usage and service charge alongwith RNTX. I thought sewer was figured on the amount of water used ?

Answer: As a general rule, a mobile home park may charge such fees so long as they are reasonable and made known to the tenant in advance and in writing before the rental agreement is executed (A.R.S. 33-1413).
