August 14, 2015 Update
We have just finished an important two months of MH Life Magazines, namely August 2015 and September 2015. Please check them out at “Magazines”.
The number one priority for any advocacy group today should be ENFORCEMENT of the existing laws. We have been brainwashed into believing there is only one option: hire a high cost attorney and go to court. Please read August 2015 MH Life Magazine, pages 4-7 “Mobilehome Residency Enforcement Problems.” This article proves a point we’ve been trying to make for years: Advocates 28 years ago knew that the usual option of enforcement (attorneys) did not work because a) MH owners can’t afford to pay $200-$400/hour to hire an attorney, b) Few attorneys are versed in MH Law, c) Few judges are versed in MH Law, and d) If you lose in court, you may have to pay attorneys fees for the park.
In addition, the 1987 Senate Select Committee Hearing provides much information on additional problems in MH parks: interference of sales, manager problems, buyers have no rights, etc. Of the 18 problems that were discussed, only one has had some resolution. That’s 28 years without resolution! Someone dropped the ball and big time! Please read August 2015 pages 8-9.
Regional Group Plan
Since November 2014 MH Life and COMO-CAL have been brainstorming how best advocates in California can serve MH owners. We have come up with a Plan which distributes resources into 10 regions around the state. This means the money will be available where it will do the most good. It will mean no more competition for members, and the plan gets everyone working together. This is HUGE and we ask you to step up, join COMO-CAL’s Regional Groups and let’s start resolving decades long problems we face today. Please read MH Life August 2015 and September 2015.

History of Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL)
In 1978, a variety of statutes relating to mobilehome park tenancies previously scattered throughout the Civil Code were brought together by S.B. 2119 (Mills) under Chapter 2.5, and titled the “Mobilehome Residency Law.” Since that time there have also been a number of additions and […]
