When does the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act (ARS §33-1301 et al) apply?  This may appear a simple question, but Arizona has several Landlord Tenant Acts depending upon the type of residence and length of lease.  Most Mobile Home Parks where the tenant owns the mobile home, and the landlord owns the land are governed by the Arizona Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. (ARS §33-1401 et al.)  A single mobile home on a parcel of land (whether the mobile home is owned by the tenant or the landlord) or a mobile home owned by the landlord in a mobile home park are governed by the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act.  Apartment complexes, duplexes, and single-family homes are governed by the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act.  Recreational Vehicles may fall under the Recreational Vehicle Long-Term Rental Space Act (ARS §33-2101 et al); for RV’s with a rental agreement for more than 180 days this section of statutes governs and regulates the Landlord/Tenant Relationship.  However, RV spaces leased for less than 180 days fall under the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act.  RV’s in a mobile home park may fall under either the RV Act, the Mobile Home Act or the Residential Act depending upon the lease terms.  When in doubt please reach out to our office to confirm which set of statutes governs your relationship with your tenant.
