Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Does the Late Fee Fairness Amendment Act Of 2016 also apply to mobile home park owners? I own my mobile but rent the lot. My landlord charged me a late fee on a late fee, but all of my rent has been paid on time. They claim that they can't apply my rent check for Dec. because it's not the full amount of my account, which includes the late fees. The late fee was because I was disputing the water bill and wasn't paying until we were able to speak about it on the phone, which was past the date that rent is due. They said they would waive the late fees, then reneged.

Answer: The Late Fee Fairness Amendment Act applies only to rental agreements in the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.). It does not apply to Arizona mobile home park lot space tenants, whose rental agreements fall under the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. If you believe that your landlord is acting unlawfully, you should seek legal advice.
