Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: can my landlord keep me from moving my travel trailer because I owe two months rent? we had agreed in October I would pay October and November rent in mid November when my student grants came in, they will be here next week, but my son only has this weekend to move my trailer for me. My landlord says I cannot legally move it, although he does not have a lien on it and I own it free and clear.

Answer: I always recommend consulting the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act found here: https://www.azag.gov/sites/default/files/documents/files/Arizona%20Mobile%20Home%20Parks%20Residential%20Landlord%20Tenant%20Act%20%20_October%202014_(3).pdf
While the Act is generally very protective of tenants, it does impose a condition on removing a mobile home from its space in A.R.S. 33-1451(B): B. A tenant shall not remove a mobile home from a mobile home space unless the tenant has received from the landlord a clearance for removal showing that all monies due the landlord as of the date of removal have been paid or that the landlord and tenant have otherwise agreed to the removal. The landlord shall not interfere with the removal of a mobile home for any reason other than nonpayment of monies due as of the date of removal even if the term of the rental agreement has not expired. Therefore the landlord can insist that you not remove a mobile home from its space under these limited circumstances. Please note that I am providing general information based on the very limited information available to me. I am unable to provide you with legal advice, and no attorney-client relationship is created hereby. I wish you the best in this and all your endeavors.
