questions & answers

Question: I’ve lived in this rv park for a little over a year and there are new owners. Now they are forcing me to remove my box trailer and truck somewhere else. They offered there new storage for $70 a month or if I rent a bigger lot $700 to $850 I can keep my belongings with me I pay $475 plus electric and a $400 deposit is that legal ? And they are threatening immediate eviction if I do not comply. Everyday they bang on my door I just paid rent yet they harrass me! Is any thing they are doing legall?

Answer: Under the Arizona law that governs the relationships between landlords and tenants in RV parks – the Recreational Vehicle Long-Term Rental Space Act (“RV Act”) – a landlord may terminate or choose not to renew a tenant’s rental agreement only with “good cause” (A.R.S. 33-2143). A landlord may seek to evict a tenant when the rental agreement is still in effect only if the tenant has materially violated the rental agreement. If the landlord believes that the tenant has materially violated the rental agreement, then the landlord must notify the tenant in writing, describing the nature of the violation in detail and informing the tenant that if the violation is not repaired within the period of time provided by the RV Act then the landlord will take the tenant to court.
