California Mobile Home Parks

Mobile Home Park Home Owners Allegiance

Note: Tue, Mar 3, 2020 – The MHPHOA are currently in the process of verifying ALL California MHP Rent Stabilization Ordinances. We have removed those ordinances that have been repealed. The number of Parks and Spaces have changed based on 2020 data available. Resident Owned Communities (179) are excluded from the counts.

We currently have ordinances documented for 83 Cities and 9 Counties (211 Unincorporated Communities) in the State of California that are protected by some form of Mobile Home Park Space Rent Stabilization Ordinance (SRSO).

Counties in California: 58, Cities in California: 482, Unincorporated Communities in California: 2,228

California RSOs aka SRSOs (Space Rent Stabilization Ordinances) are NOT to be confused with Rent Control for home and apartment renters. When you see or hear the term “Rent Stabilization Ordinance” being used by residents of mobile/manufactured home parks in California, they do not include home or apartment renters. The laws are distinctly different between renters of homes and apartments vs. renters of mobile/manufactured home spaces and are usually not interchangeable.

Many mobile/manufactured home owners rent the land that the home occupies. For a homeowner, this is not the best situation to be in, especially in a park that is owned by a predatory company. Typically, under the predatory owner business model, as space rents increase above Fair Market Rates (FMRs), your mobile/manufactured home will depreciate in value (loss in equity) while the land value appreciates (gain in equity). The general industry rule of thumb is that for every $10 per month space rent increase, you lose $1,000 in mobile home equity.

Note: The number of spaces for each city or county does not take into account those spaces that have been “leased up” and are no longer protected by an SRSO. Our data is obtained from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), Codes and Standards Automated System (CASAS), and reflects total numbers for parks and spaces. In some instances, we may have received more accurate data from other resources.
