Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Purchased a mobile home in an all age community Feb 2019. It has 3 wall A/C units (1 in each bedroom and one that sometimes struggles to cool the livingroom/ kitchen area). We were recently told by somebody that by law it has to have central A/C because of how hot it gets here in AZ. Trying to find out if this is true or not. If this is true, is it legal that it was sold without central A/C and who would be responsible for putting one in?

Answer: Arizona law does not specify *how* a residential dwelling must be cooled – but only *that* it must be cooled. Central air-conditioning is not legally required. Even evaporative (“swamp”) coolers are permitted so long as they work.
