The 2017 Mobilehome Residency Law Handbook is available online as a pdf file on the Senate Select Committee on Manufactured Home Communites website:
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.
JURISDICTION: The Select Committee is authorized and directed to ascertain, study and analyze problems relating to manufactured homes, mobilehomes and prefabricated structures as a form of housing, including, but not limited to
• the manufacture, sales and financing of such units, taxes and fees imposed upon them;
• the effect of such housing on related land use matters, including, but not limited to, zoning, change of use and affordable housing; and
• the issues unique to both rental and resident-owned mobilehome parks and manufactured housing communities, including, but not limited to, landlord-tenant matters and health and safety code enforcement
with an emphasis on providing legislative recommendations for resolving problems in these areas.
THIS COMMITTEE HAS NO LAW ENFORCEMENT POWERS.
