Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Act HCD Bulletin Available

Information Bulletin 2018-03 providesdetail regarding the Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Act established by AB 3066 (Chapter 774, Statutes of 2018).


Beginning July 1, 2020, any homeowner who has a tenancy in a Mobilehome Park under a rental agreement may submit a complaint for an alleged violation of the MRL to the Department of Housing and Community Development. The Department will provide assistance to help resolve and coordinate resolution of such complaints.

Beginning January 1, 2019, and each subsequent year thereafter, each park will be assessed a fee of ten dollars ($10) per permitted lot by the Department. The fee is added to the costs for the renewal of the annual permit to operate.

Local Enforcement Agencies must collect the MRLPP fees from their respective Mobilehome Park owners/operators and forward them to the Department.

The park owner may, within 90 days from payment of the permit to operate, invoice the tenant for the MRLPP fee (only to individual homeowners under mobilehome tenancies). The fee may be collected in part or in whole at the time rent is due; however, management is not allowed to pass on the fee in the form of a rent increase.

So the tenants are paying for the program, which they cannot use until 2020. The program sunsets in 2024.
