Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: I live in a Trailer park I own my home but I pay lot rent. The Park raises the lot rent $15.00 dollars every year. I heard they were gonna raise it like 200 dollars more this year. My question is can they do that.

Answer: The Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act says that unless the landlord changes the lot space rent for a reason or in a manner that violates a different specific provision of the Act, then, as a general rule “... upon the expiration or renewal of any rental agreement, the landlord may increase or decrease the total rent or change payment arrangements. The landlord shall notify the tenant in writing by first class or certified mail or by personal delivery at least ninety days prior to the expiration or renewal of any rental agreement of any such increase or change. Nothing in this subsection requires a landlord to provide cause for any change in rent if the landlord complies with notice requirements” (A.R.S. 33-1413(G)). A 2018 summary of the Act, which may predate some recent changes, is available here: https://housing.az.gov/sites/default/files/LTA-Summary-2018-rev11.2018.pdf.
