2018 GSMOL Convention – Friday-Saturday, April 13-14, 2018

Tue, Nov 14, 2017 – The 2018 GSMOL Convention will be Friday and Saturday, April 13 and 14, 2018 at the Azure Hotel & Suites located at the Ontario Airport, 1945 East Holt Boulevard in Ontario, California 91761.

Why Come to the GSMOL Convention?

How will the 2018 Convention be different from any other? NO VOTING!

Because the 2018 elections will be held by MAIL-IN BALLOT, your GSMOL officers will have already been elected, and the proposed Bylaws changes already implemented, by the time the Convention is held. So our 2018 Convention is really going to be more like what people have come to expect from a Conference.

Over the last few Conventions we have put more and more emphasis on giving attendees opportunities for learning, communicating, connecting, sharing issues and ideas, exploring resources and products and services, meeting your GSMOL leaders and experts in many fields related to manufactured-home living, and getting to know manufactured-home owners from all over the state.


Sun, Nov 12, 2017 – Sacramento – People who purchased a mobilehome or manufactured home but didn't receive the necessary title to the property now have a chance to properly register their homes with the new Fee and Tax Waiver Program – and avoid paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars in state and local taxes, fees and penalties.

The Fee and Tax Waiver Program, passed as Assembly Bill 587 and signed by Governor Edmund G. Brown last year, took effect this year, waiving certain fees and back taxes – saving homeowners possibly thousands of dollars.

But mobilehome owners must move fast, applying for and providing the necessary documents for the Fee and Tax Waiver Program.

5 Reasons Why Registering Your Mobilehome is the Right Move

  1. Most mobilehome parks require legal registration.
  2. Registration helps legally transfer title of mobilehomes to heirs – spouse, children, etc.
  3. Some home improvement projects require a building permit – and proper registration.
  4. More mobilehome parks and utility companies are embracing individual rental space connections for services, such as electricity and water, and require registration.
  5. Fire and flood insurance require registration.

Get a Move-On, Start Now!

Resident Question: Can the park charge first and last months’ rent plus a 2-month security deposit?

MRL Answer: Normally, when a mobilehome owner is accepted for residency in a mobilehome park and signs a rental agreement, charging first month’s rent and a 2-month security deposit are permitted. (Civil Code §798.39) After one full year of satisfactory residency (meaning all rent and fees have been paid during that time), the resident is entitled to request a refund of the 2-month security deposit, or may request a refund at the time he or she vacates the park and sells the home. (Civil Code §798.39(b))
