Annual $10 fee for mobilehome lots — Have you been charged an additional $10 by park management?
This fee is designed to serve mobilehome/manufactured homeowners through the Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program. As of January 1, 2019, park management is required to pay $10 for each mobilehome lot within their park. Park management has the option to pass this fee along to you. In the event of certain types of disputes between mobilehome/manufactured homeowners in mobilehome parks and park management, the fee funds a program to help resolve certain disputes.
When can I submit a complaint for consideration?
Beginning July 1, 2020, any mobilehome/manufactured homeowner living in a mobilehome park under a rental agreement may submit a complaint for an alleged violation of the Mobilehome Residency Law.
Who can submit a complaint?
Must be a mobilehome / manufactured homeowner residing in a permitted mobilehome park.
What types of complaints can be submitted for consideration?
Complaints for issues within mobilehome parks related to Mobilehome Residency Law violations (California Civil Code). Common violations include illegal grounds for eviction, failure to provide proper notice of rent increases, or no written rental agreement between the park and mobilehome owner.
How do I submit my complaint?
Complaints must be submitted to HCD. HCD provides assistance to help resolve and coordinate resolution of the most severe alleged violations of the Mobilehome Residency Law. Visit the How to Submit a Complaint page 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.
How long will the program last?
The Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program is a limited-term program beginning July 1, 2020, and ending January 1, 2024 (unless the program is extended by the California Legislature).
