RE: Skandia Mobile Country Club, KSFG, IPG

Tue, Feb 22, 2022 – The Skandia Senior Mobile Home Park – a 167 unit park – fell under new ownership last August after it was acquired from the Coulter Family Trust for $58 million.

According to public records from the Orange County Clerk Recorder’s office, SKANDIA MHC, LP managed by Michael Scott and Lee Kort, as well as SKANDIA BLF, LLC, managed by Brian Fitterer, now own the mobile home park property.

They are both located at the same address in Irvine as the Investment Property Group (IPG), which manages the park.

The group then informed residents that rent would be going up by $75 annually for the next three years after the park was bought.

The property taxes were reassessed in the amount of $290 per site, per month. The rent increase to $75 does not nearly cover the increase in property taxes of the community but we kept the increase low in order to ensure every resident can stay in their home, she said.

She said the group is not only raising rents for current residents in the park but that the space rent for people who decide to move to Skandia is shooting up by $750 causing the value of the homes in the park to plummet by $75,000 or more.

Thu, Feb 3, 2022 – Lynn Plumb has lived in the Skandia Mobile Country Club in Huntington Beach since the late 1980s. The 86-year-old has a cozy mobile home which she maintains on her fixed Social Security income and what she calls her “measly” savings.

She doesn’t want to leave. Where would she go? Plumb had two sons who have already passed away. She could live in the basement of her daughter’s home in Buffalo, N.Y., but she’d certainly rather stay in Surf City.

I can’t even picture leaving here, Plumb said. All of the people here are like family to me.

Plumb and many Skandia residents, though, say they’ve been unfairly pinched for the last several months, since Investment Property Group bought the 167-unit senior property from the Coulter Family Trust last August.

IPG raised their space rents $75 a month each year for the next three years, larger rent hikes than they’ve previously seen. The company, which owns about 100 mobile home parks nationwide, has offered the residents long-term leases to sign, but many don’t feel like that’s in their best interests, either.

Additionally, Skandia Home Owners Assn. president Carol Rohr said property values have plummeted since IPG raised the space rent for new home buyers from $1,445 to $2,195 per month.

Thu, Feb 17, 2022 – According to data obtained from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), there are 5,246 Active Mobile Home and RV Parks totaling 453,163 lots/spaces in the State of California.

HCD Note: HCD has enforcement of 81.4 percent of the parks and 75.5 percent of the lots in the State of California. The overall average park size is 86 lots; 80 for Mobile Home Parks, and 88 for RV Parks.

Thu, Jan 20, 2022 – The MHPHOA online version of the 2022 California Mobilehome Residency Law in HTML has been updated to reflect all changes indicated below.

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.

From the 2022 MRL Introduction:

Note: Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program (MRLPP). Beginning July 1, 2021, any mobilehome or manufactured homeowner living in a mobilehome park under a rental agreement may submit a complaint for an alleged violation of the Mobilehome Residency Law. Any mobilehome or manufactured homeowner residing in a permitted mobilehome park is eligible to submit a complaint. Complaints must be submitted to HCD. HCD provides assistance to help resolve and coordinate resolution of the most severe alleged violations of the Mobilehome Residency Law. For questions regarding the MRLPP please call 1-800-952-8356, email MRLComplaint@HCD.CA.gov or visit https://www.HCD.CA.gov/.

For the 2022 edition, there are significant legislation changes that affect the MRL. AB 861 (CIV 798.23) requires mobilehome park management to comply with any park rule or regulation prohibiting mobilehome owners from renting or subleasing unless renting or subleasing to an employee. AB 978 (CIV 798.30.5) set specific restrictions for mobilehome parks located between two incorporated cities. AB 1061 (CIV 798.40) sets specific requirements for mobilehome parks that have individual water submeters to bill for water. AB 1584 (CIV 798.56) clarifies a manufactured home can be considered an ADU if it meets specified requirements.
