Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: House financed in mobile park with lot rent. Shortly after moving into my mobile home park, they let my neighbor get a dog. This dog violates half of the park rules pertaining to pets. It's over the 16" and probably 40lb. limit, They leave it outside, unattended, it barks for hours at a time both when the neighbors are home, and when they are not. The neighbors, pretend not to understand English when I try to talk to them. I have complained about the dog hundreds of times to park management, they have done nothing about the dog. What are my options?

Answer: Under the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, a mobile home park tenant is required to “conduct himself and require other persons on the premises with the tenant’s consent to conduct themselves in a manner that will not disturb the tenant’s neighbors’ peaceful enjoyment of the premises” (A.R.S. 33-1451(A)(5)). If a mobile home park tenant’s neighbor is violating A.R.S. 33-1451(A)(5), that tenant may wish to send the mobile home park landlord a signed and dated letter (keeping a copy for the tenant’s own records) describing the problem in detail and requesting that the problem be addressed and remedied as soon as possible. If, even after the landlord has received such a letter and a reasonable period of time has passed, the landlord does not fix the problem, then the tenant may wish to seek legal advice.
