From the Senate Select Committee on Manufactured Home Communities:

Division 2, Part 2, Chap. 2.5 of the Civil Code. The Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL) is the “landlord-tenant law” for mobilehome parks, which, like landlord-tenant law and other Civil Code provisions, are enforced in a court of law. The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) does not have authority to enforce violations of the MRL.
Senate Select Committee on Manufactured Home Communities

From the 2019 MRL Introduction:

For the 2019 edition, there are no new amendments to the Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL). However, there is new legislation signed by the Governor that is significant to those living in mobilehomes: SB 1130 (Leyva), AB 2056 (E. Garcia), and AB 3066 (Stone).

In January 2006, space rents were advertised at $500 per month. In January 2013, space rents were advertised at $1,000 per month. As of January 2019, mobile home space rents are now advertised at $2,200 per month, that’s a 120% increase in six (6) years and a 340% increase in twelve (12) years. As of Jan 2019 the average space rent for 14 of the 17 mobile home parks in Huntington Beach, California is $1,395 per month.
