Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Who is responsible for upkeep on driveways on lots we rent? Our driveways are crumbling away so whose is responsible to fix them. Do not feel we should have to pay for landlords property since we rent the property.

Answer: If a rental agreement between a landlord and a tenant does not answer this sort of question directly, then the general provisions of the applicable landlord/tenant act usually apply. Both the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (ARLTA) and the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (Mobile Home Parks Act) state that the landlord must “make all repairs and do whatever is necessary to put and keep the premises in a fit and habitable condition” and “keep all common areas of the premises in a clean and safe condition” (ARLTA: A.R.S. 33-1324; Mobile Home Parks Act: A.R.S. 33-1434).
