Make all repairs and do whatever is necessary to put and keep the premises in a fit and habitable condition. 3. Keep all common areas of the premises in a clean and safe condition. 4. Maintain in good and safe working order and condition all swimming pool, shower, bathhouse, electrical, plumbing and sanitary facilities, including the recreational hall or meeting facilities supplied or required to be supplied or maintained by the landlord. 5. Provide for removal of garbage, rubbish and other waste incidental to the occupancy of the mobile home space. 6. Furnish outlets for electric, water and sewer services (A.R.S. 33-1434).
