I would like to ask can the new owners do a credit check on everyone that lives here already and kick them out for anything on the background checks
A: The landlord may adjust rent if the periodic term of your lease is up. You can pay the increased rent or refuse and move. Under the Arizona Mobile Home Landlord and Tenant Act (ARS 33-1401 et seq) the landlord would need to terminate the lease and provide appropriate notice. ARS 33-1476. You should consult an attorney in your area that is familiar with and practices in this field of law.
