Question: Does landlord have the right to impose a monthly fee for indoor pets when the tenant owns the mobile home and pays rent for the space only since the pet will never impact the mobile home community?
Answer: In accordance with the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act A.R.S (Title 33-1452) a landlord may adopt written rules or regulations describing tenant use of occupancy only if: 1. Their purpose is to promote the convenience, safety or welfare of the tenants on the premises, preserve the landlord's property from abusive use, preserve or upgrade the quality of the mobile home park or make a fair distribution of services and facilities held out for the tenants generally. 2. They are reasonably related to the purpose for which adopted. 3. They apply to all tenants on the premises in a fair manner. 4. They are sufficiently explicit in prohibition, direction or limitation of the tenant's conduct to fairly inform the tenant of what must or must not be done to comply. 5. They are not for the purpose of evading the obligations of the landlord. 6. The prospective tenant has a copy of the current rules and regulations before the prospective tenant enters into the rental agreement. If fairly applied to all residents or if otherwise stated in a written form of agreement, the policy is permissible. However if the statement of policy that was provided to you by the landlord had changed and fair notification was not provided then the landlord shall be held responsible for remediating the complaint. A delivered notice of complaint to the landlord specifying the breach of contract may be legally terminated no less than 30 days after delivery of the notice if no action has been taken towards the charge in accordance to (ARS 33-1471).
