Western Manufactured Housing Communities Association (WMA) is a nonprofit organization created in 1945 for the exclusive purpose of promoting and protecting the interests of owners, operators and developers of manufactured home communities in California.
If your property was impacted by the fires in Butte, Lake, Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma and Yuba counties, your tenants are eligible to be reimbursed for damages or losses (such as evacuation and relocation costs) through FEMA. These counties have been part of federal or state disaster declarations.
People who purchased a mobilehome or manufactured home but didn’t receive the necessary title to the property now have a chance to properly register their homes with the new Fee and Tax Waiver Program – and avoid paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars in state and local taxes, fees and penalties.
AB 3066 (Stone) is a re-introduction of AB 1269 (Stone) from last year, which was vetoed by Governor Brown. It was introduced past the regular deadlines on June 18 by gutting and amending an innocuous bill that had already been passed to the second house.
WMA opposes the legislation because it provides absolutely no right to cure alleged violations of the Mobilehome Residency Law before being referred to legal aid. Similar to the previous legislation, it authorizes park operators to pass along a $10 per space fee to all mobilehome owners.
The owners of Willits Mobile Home Park and many park residents attended Wednesday’s City Council meeting to make their voices heard about raises in rent, alleged issues with the new management company Boa Vida, and a potential rent stabilization ordinance. There was standing room only at the meeting.
After much discussion, City Council decided not to move forward with implementing a rent stabilization ordinance.
