Wed, Jan 1, 2020 – Historical Assembly Bill (AB) NOT PassedThu, Feb 18, 2016 – AB-2351 Mobilehome parks: rent control. Introduced by Assembly Member Roger Hernández – An act to repeal Section 798.17 of the Civil Code, relating to mobilehome parks.

The Mobilehome Residency Law governs the terms and conditions of residency in mobilehome parks, and exempts a rental agreement that satisfies specified criteria, including that it be in excess of 12-months’ duration, from any ordinance, rule, regulation, or initiative measure adopted by a local governmental entity that establishes a maximum amount a landlord may charge a tenant for rent.

This bill would repeal these provisions. The bill would make a statement of legislative findings.

MRL EXPLOITS - REPEAL MRL §798.17

RE: Cabrillo Management Corporation

Mon, Jul 13, 2020 – On a hot evening in June, residents of the Glenbrook Trails manufactured home park for seniors in Loomis gathered outside in an empty site. Through their face masks, they discussed their fears about the new leases they’ve been offered. The leases would last 25 years – a quarter of a century tied to the same management company.

Long-term leases, like the 25-year lease offered to residents of Glenbrook Trails, are a tactic used by park management companies to avoid local rent stabilization and continue raising rent, said Linda Nye, the president of the Golden State Manufactured Home Owners League (GSMOL).

Long-term leases in parks like Glenbrook Trails rely on a loophole in state law that exempts leases in mobile and manufactured home parks longer than 12 months from local rent controls. Under the current law, management companies can raise rents at whichever rate they set in the lease, even if it exceeds local rent stabilization ordinances.

State Senator Tom Umberg, D-Santa Ana, proposed a bill in February that would close the loophole that exempts long-term mobile and manufactured home leases from rent control. The bill, SB 999, would ensure that long-term leases are subject to local rent control ordinances. The bill passed the California Senate on June 22 and is now awaiting committee assignment in the Assembly.

Thu, Jul 9, 2020 – California’s state housing agency did not conduct full inspections at more than half of the state’s mobile home parks between 2010 and 2019 and should improve oversight to protect residents, a state audit said Thursday.

The audit was requested by state Sen. Connie M. Leyva (D-Chino) as chairwoman of the Senate Select Committee on Manufactured Home Communities after she heard complaints from mobile home owners about lax state oversight.

On Thursday, Leyva called the findings “disturbing” and “unacceptable” and said her committee will provide its oversight to make sure there is follow-up action.

As mobile homes are a vital option for affordable housing in California, it is clear that the state must improve both the quality and frequency of these inspections so that we can keep the approximately 2 million mobile home residents living at nearly 5,000 mobile home parks healthy and safe, Leyva said.

Thu, Jul 9, 2020 – As directed by the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, my office conducted an audit of the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). Our assessment focused on the mobile home park and complaint inspections that HCD conducts under its Mobilehome and Special Occupancy Parks Program (parks program). This report concludes that HCD can better protect mobile home park residents’ health and safety by improving its inspection processes. It also needs to better manage the costs and resources of the parks program.

Although HCD is meeting its statutory goal of conducting park inspections at 5 percent of parks annually, it did not conduct park inspections at more than half of the active parks in its jurisdiction between 2010 and 2019, and its data indicate that it did not visit 9 percent of parks, or 330 parks representing 5,700 mobile home units, for any reason during that time. Long gaps between inspectors’ visits to a park increase the risk that health and safety violations remain undetected and unreported. By improving its selection process for annual park inspections to include some parks that it has not visited in recent years and implementing guidance for informal visits, HCD could reduce the risks posed by health and safety violations at parks.

Furthermore, HCD also has not adequately communicated with residents during park inspections and with individuals who submit complaints. For example, HCD did not consistently notify residents of violations within required time frames, nor did it share all required information about the rights, responsibilities, and resources available to park residents. As a result, some residents may have missed opportunities to obtain help in correcting violations before parks initiated steps to evict them.
