Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: Can I the owner of the property, turn off electric if the tenant has not yet been evicted, but has failed to pay rent.

Answer: No. A landlord may only cut off a tenant’s access to utilities after a court of law has issued a writ of restitution restoring possession of the dwelling to the landlord (A.R.S. 33-1377). A landlord who cuts off a tenant’s access to utilities before receiving formal permission to do so from a judge will be liable to the tenant for monetary damages amounting to a minimum of twice the monthly rent (A.R.S. 33-1367).
