Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program
The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has a Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program (MRLPP). The Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL) is the "landlord-tenant law" for mobilehome parks, which, like landlord-tenant law and other Civil Code provisions, is enforced in a court of law. The https://mobilehomes.senate.ca.gov/sites/mobilehomes.senate.ca.gov/files/2022_mrl_pdf.pdf 2022 Mobilehome Residency Law Handbook includes MRL Civil Codes, frequently asked questions, and local community resources.
Who can submit an MRLPP complaint? Any mobilehome/manufactured homeowner that has tenancy in a mobilehome park.
What types of complaints can be submitted for consideration? Complaints for issues within mobilehome parks related to MRL violations (California Civil Code). Common violations include but are not limited to:
- illegal grounds for eviction
- failure to provide proper notice of rent increases
- no written rental agreement between the park and mobilehome/manufactured homeowner
How does a mobilehome/manufactured homeowner submit their complaint? Complaints must be submitted to HCD. HCD provides assistance to help resolve and coordinate resolution of the most severe alleged violations of the MRL. Visit the https://www.hcd.ca.gov/manufactured-and-mobilehomes/mobilehome-assistance-center/how-to-submit-complaint Submit a Complaint webpage for details on ways to submit your complaint to HCD.
Please note: HCD is prohibited from arbitrating, mediating, negotiating, or providing legal advice in connection with mobilehome park rent disputes, lease or rental agreements, or disputes arising from rental or lease agreements.
