Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Can the new owners of the park ask for all my family members and health history in a new rental agreement? Why do they need this information?

Answer: It depends on what is meant by “health history,” and on why they are asking, but, as a general rule, a landlord may not ask for personal medical information. However, if a mobile home park tenant is seeking the landlord’s permission to have a live-in care giver, for example, then the landlord may require a written treatment plan from the tenant’s doctor (A.R.S. 33-1413.03). If you believe that your new landlord is demanding improper information, then you may wish to request that a legal advocate help you to determine if what they are asking is lawful.
