Overview

The Fee and Tax Waiver Program for Unregistered Mobilehomes
AB 587 implemented by HCD.

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.

Government Affairs

Red Alert

WMA Opposes AB 3066 (Stone)
Gut and Amend of last year's AB 1269 (Stone)

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.
