The Mobilehome Residency Law governs the terms and conditions of residency in mobilehome parks.

The Mobilehome Residency Law governs the terms and conditions of residency in mobilehome parks. Among other things, the Mobilehome Residency Law exempts a rental agreement that satisfies specified criteria from any ordinance, rule, regulation, or initiative measure adopted by a local governmental entity that establishes a maximum amount a landlord may charge a tenant for rent. In order for the exemption to apply, existing law requires the rental agreement to, among other things, enable the homeowner to void the rental agreement by notifying management in writing within 72 hours of the homeowner’s execution of the agreement.

This bill would instead require that the rental agreement permit the homeowner to void the rental agreement by notifying management in writing within 72 hours of the homeowner returning the signed rental agreement to management, if the homeowner is provided a copy of the signed rental agreement at the time the signed rental agreement is returned to management. The bill would also require that the rental agreement permit the homeowner to void the rental agreement by notifying management in writing within 72 hours of the homeowner receiving an executed copy of the rental agreement, as specified, if the homeowner is not provided with a copy of the signed rental agreement at the time the homeowner returns the signed rental agreement to management.

Existing law prohibits the management of a mobilehome park from charging or imposing upon a homeowner any fee or increase in rent which reflects the cost to the management of certain fines, fees, or damages assessed or awarded by a court against the management for a violation of the Mobilehome Residency Law.

This bill would extend the above provisions to fines, fees, or damages assessed or awarded by the court or an enforcement agency against the management for a violation of specified laws pertaining to mobilehome parks. The bill would also clarify that these provisions do not apply to violations for which the registered owner of the mobilehome is initially responsible, as specified. Hide
