Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: 5 purchase a mobile home that is currently in a mobile home park but I'm not a resident of the mobile home park what are my rights if they are trying to make me leave

Answer: The Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (A.R.S. Title 33, Chapter 11) sets out the law governing the rental of mobile home spaces and rights and obligations of landlord and tenant, including grounds for eviction of a Mobile Home Owner (Tenant) by a the Mobile Park Owner (Landlord). The MHPRLTA does not directly address Tenants who don't permanently reside in their MH, but does address sub-leasing (presumably of Mobile Home Park space; the "Tenant" owns, and so, directly leases the Mobile Home itself). In summary, the MHPRLTA subleasing is grounds for eviction unless this was pre-agreed in the lease or if the landlord allows others to sublease. MHPRTLA, Ch 33-1454, states... A. Unless otherwise agreed, the tenant shall occupy the tenant's mobile home only as a dwelling unit and may sublet, upon written agreement with the park management. B. If a landlord adopts a policy of permitting subleasing, the landlord shall not unreasonably withhold approval of subleases and subtenants. A landlord may adopt a policy that prohibits subleasing, but that policy is not effective against any subleasing that had been approved by the landlord and that was in effect at the time the subleasing prohibition was adopted. C. This section shall not be construed to require any landlord to permit subleasing of spaces.
