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

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.

Prop. 13 targeted by proposed California ballot initiative

Forty years after Proposition 13 was approved by California voters, the issue of property-tax limits could be back on the state ballot in 2018.

A coalition of liberal groups is trying to qualify an initiative for the November ballot that would remove Prop. 13’s restrictions on reassessments and tax increases for corporate-owned property.

A New Home for $90,000? Manufactured Housing Is Making a Comeback

While others walked away from manufactured homes, Don Glisson Jr. stuck around.

He’s seen the industry’s ups and downs in his 36 years working at Triad Financial Services, the third-biggest lender to buyers of factory-made houses in the U.S. The rock-bottom was in the early 2000s, when rival firms were getting fat on subprime loans.

L.A. County supports temporary rent control for mobile homes

Unincorporated portions of Los Angeles County could see rent control for mobile homes reinstated more than 23 years after county leaders allowed similar restrictions to lapse.

On a 3-1 vote Tuesday, Aug. 14, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors supported a six-month moratorium on rent hikes greater than 3 percent for mobile home spaces. The stop-gap measure is designed to keep park owners from raising rent before a permanent rent control ordinance under review takes effect.

L.A. County Supervisors approve temporary rent control ordinance for mobile homes

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday moved to impose temporary rent caps on mobile homes. The vote comes amid a broader, controversial push to remove barriers to rent control across California in response to rising housing costs.

In a 3-1 vote, supervisors approved temporary caps on so-called space rents — the price park owners charge residents to keep their homes on the premises. The ordinance, which will come back for final approval next month, would be in effect for 180 days and limit rent increases to 3% a year for leases of 12 months and less.
