Wed, Oct 28, 2015 – Almost two months after many rents doubled at a mobile home park for seniors, the San Juan Capistrano City Council has reversed the decision, much to residents’ relief. The council unanimously decided Monday that the $641 rent increase at the El Nido Mobile Estates in September far exceeded a “just return” on the land and violated the city’s municipal code.

Tue, Oct 27, 2015 – Sunnyvale does not have rent control for mobile-home parks, so there's theoretically no limit on how much Carlyle could raise rents. Yet landlords who get too aggressive on rents can run into political pushback and spark calls for rent regulations. Mobile-home parks are often seen as "naturally affordable," and their preservation has become a major issue in the South Bay, with San Jose instituting a moratorium to temporarily halt closures after Pulte announced plans to convert the Winchester Ranch Mobile Home Park to homes this summer.

Thu, Oct 8, 2015 – Three months ago, Anaheim based Sierra Corporate Management purchased Corona La Linda Mobile Home Park, which borders the Home Gardens area at 777 S. Temescal St. Since then, residents say the price for new rentals has doubled, to $1,300 per month. A park employee, who would not give their name, confirmed the new rate but would not comment on pre-existing rentals. Abe Arrigotti, Sierra President, did not return messages.
