Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: So quick question is there a law on how much space is allowed on the backside of your trailer in a trailer park? I have a boat that I have had stored on the backside of my trailer for six months now and the space behind us was empty but now an R.V. is moving in and my landlord is saying I am only allowed three feet on the backside of my trailer but that seems really small to me like not even big enough in case of emergency.

Answer: There could be a local ordinance that requires a setback for the mobile home space. You'll need to check with your local city or county government. You also need to check your lease. If your lease does not address the issue, and landlord has allowed you to use space then lease may have been modified by verbal agreement and you and your landlord's past behavior. Hope this helps!
