Did you know millionaires are eligible for rent control housing in California? Yes, it’s a fact. Rent controlled mobilehomes are NOT means tested. This is why some waterfront mobile homes are selling for over $4 million in Malibu, California! This really underscores how misdirected some public policy can be when trying to find real solutions to California’s housing crisis.
Private landlords who have blanket bans on renting to people with criminal records are in violation of the Fair Housing Act and can be sued and face penalties for discrimination, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development said today as they released new guidance on the issue.
Measure V was a voter initiative drafted by a group of mobile home park residents. Blanck said the county reviewed the initiative and found that it complied with current laws. The measure only regulates rent increases at mobile home parks with ten or more spaces in unincorporated areas, of which there are more than 40 in the county.
Only private and nonprofit housing developers can borrow and leverage the many billions of dollars in housing investment California needs, but they need regulatory streamlining and other structural reforms to make it work. That’s the harsh reality.
Sen. Bill Dodd, D-Napa, introduced a bill on Jan. 17 which makes several notable changes to the Mobilehome Residency Law, allowing two guests to stay with a homeowner in her/his mobilehome, without additional fees being imposed by the mobilehome park management.
