questions & answers

Question: I want to move out of my mobile home. The does not want to buy it off me but I've had people who wanted to previously purchase it off of me. They do not want to take applications from the people who want to buy. Can they legally not accept applications from people who want to purchase and keep me paying lease space?

Answer: Under Section A.R.S. 33-1452(F)) of the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, a mobile home park landlord may not “deny any resident of a mobile home park the right to sell the resident’s mobile home at a price of the resident’s own choosing during the term of the tenant’s rental agreement”; “require a tenant ... to use any specific sales agency ... or broker”; or “prohibit a tenant from advertising the sale or exchange of the tenant’s mobile home.” Although the landlord has a “right to approve the purchaser”, such approval “may not be unreasonably withheld.” If either the seller or the prospective buyer writes the landlord to request an explanation as to why approval is being withheld, the landlord must provide an explanation within ten days.
