Answer: If you are concerned with mistreatment by the landlord of a mobile home park, you may wish first to contact the Office of Manufactured Housing and make a complaint. Their website is http://www.dfbls.az.gov/omh.aspx. You may also wish to contact Fair Housing if you feel there has been discrimination. There website is http://www.housingaz.com/ShowPage.aspx?ID=133. If and when you are served with a summons and complaint in a special detainer action, you need to be prepared to appear in court with proof to defend yourself on the date contained in the papers. If you do not appear or are not prepared, the Judge may rule against you and evict you. You may also look here for additional information on applicable laws: http://www.azsos.gov/public_services/publications/mobile_home_landlord_tenant_act/.
