Thu, Apr 28, 2022 – Torrance will consider implementing a rent stabilization ordinance for mobile home parks in the city – after months-long calls to do so from residents of a seniors-only complex that’s faced more than 15% increases in rent for lots within six months.

No current legislation regulating rental increases for mobile home parks apply to any of the 10 within Torrance’s city limits. That gives the city the option to create its own rental ordinance, though it’ll come with several challenges.

The issue was brought to the attention of the City Council by residents of a mobile home park on Pacific Coast Highway. It’s a senior’s complex – one of only two age-restricted parks in Torrance.

In October 2021, the property was sold to new owners for $67 million. Shortly after, residents were notified of a $96 rent increase effective December of that year. Another $100 rent increase will go into effect on June 30, according to a city staff report.

Wed, Apr 27, 2022 – Will voters in Huntington Beach decide on a rental stabilization ordinance for the city’s mobile home parks?

Vocal mobile home residents saw the Huntington Beach Mobile Home Advisory Board take the first step toward making that a possibility during a tense meeting Monday night at City Hall.

The Mobile Home Advisory Board voted 5-4 to send a proposed “carveout” of Section 803 of the City Charter to the City Council for review. If the City Council agrees to move it forward, an item would be placed on the November ballot.

The city passed Measure EE in 2002, which prohibits rent stability ordinances, but the carveout would allow an exception to be made in the case of mobile homes.

Mon, Apr 25, 2022 – Because of high housing costs, mobile home parks are becoming more popular with various types of tenants. Wall Street is capitalizing on this trend and has been investing in both mobile home parks and build to rent communities.

Build-to-rent communities refer to building large tracts of single family home communities to rent them out long term. Mobile home and build-to-rent tenants stay in their communities much longer than apartment tenants, making them even more enticing for investors.

Housing prices are continuing to soar, prompting some to relocate to mobile home parks. Mobile home parks have cheaper lot rent and general costs compared to traditional apartments. Wall Street firms like The Carlyle Group and Alden Global Capital recognize this and are pouring funds into this space.

Wed, Apr 6, 2022 – Mobile home residents at 17 properties in Oceanside are upset about an annual rent increase coming their way.

They live in rent-controlled mobile home parks. The city’s Manufactured Home Fair Practices Commission is set to vote on April 7 on the annual rent hikes.

The city commissioners are being asked to approve a 3.9% rent increase for the mobile home parks.

In order for the rent increases to be approved, the 17 mobile home parks have to pass annual health and safety inspections.

An Oceanside spokesperson said 8 of the 17 parks did not pass inspection this year, and therefore were found to be non-compliant.

The rent increases cannot be implemented for those properties until the parks have taken corrective action and are in compliance, according to the city.

CBS 8 requested the inspection reports and the city released the records late Wednesday afternoon. According to the reports, the results of the February 2022 inspections were as follows:
