Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Is the landlord of the mobile home park legally supposed to tell all the tenants if there is construction going on that will mess with the water supply? Our landlord rarely if ever tells us when there is construction expected and our water will be shut off without prior notice. Isnt there a law against that or something?

Answer: A.R.S. 33-1434(A)(7) – which is a subsection of the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act – says that mobile home park landlords must “provide a statement of proposed interruption of utility service to the tenants within a reasonable time frame except in the case of an interruption caused by an emergency. An emergency does not include any failure or refusal on the part of the landlord to fulfill the landlord’s duties and obligations [to maintain fit premises]. A statement of proposed interruption of utility service may be provided by posting an announcement of the period of the interruption in a conspicuous place within the mobile home park or by individual delivery to each tenant.”
