Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: I was considering a move from Texas to Show Low AZ. I put a $1000 deposit and paid $445 lot fee. When I returned home in TX. I realized that downsizing from a 2300sqft home to a 900sqft trailer was not doable for me at this time. After 2 days from signing the agreement, I gave my formal written notice that I had changed my mind. Now the owner will not refund my money. What can I do. $1400 dollars is quite an amount to keep for just because. I was told they could have shown the trailer 2 times during that time, however the unit was not even ready for someone to move in.

Answer: Your rights and responsibilities under the rental agreement that you and the landlord entered into here in Arizona will depend on exactly what that rental agreement said (for example, about whether or not the deposit you paid was refundable and under what conditions). If you would like to discuss the details of your rental agreement with an attorney, there are links to free and low-cost legal services on this website.
