Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: The house is owned by us, but we are paying rent on a lot. My landlord gave us a notice saying we need to repaint our house or he will do it himself and charge us for it, is that legal?

Answer: The answer to the question of whether a specific demand is lawful often comes down to what the rental agreement between the landlord and the tenant says. In the case of a mobile home park, the park policies and rules and regulations are included in the rental agreement. As a general rule, a landlord cannot require a tenant to do something that the tenant has not already agreed to do.
