Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Is it legal to charge monthly for unpotable water? And how long can a mobile home park not supply any water to the space renters

Answer: Under the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, a mobile home park landlord must (among other things) “comply with the requirements of all applicable city, county and state codes materially affecting health and safety”; “make all repairs and do whatever is necessary to put and keep the premises in a fit and habitable condition”; and “furnish outlets for electric, water and sewer services” (A.R.S. 33-1434). If the landlord the landlord deliberately or negligently fails to supply essential services, then the tenant may give reasonable notice to the landlord specifying the breach (A.R.S. 33-1474(A)) and if the landlord still fails to provide the essential services within a reasonable period of time sue the landlord in court for monetary damages and/or injunctive relief (A.R.S. 33-1471(B)). Under Arizona law a residential rental property that lacks potable water is classified as a “slum property” (A.R.S. 33-1901).
