LA County leaders take a step toward rent control at mobile home parks

In an effort to try to keep people from being evicted from their homes, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to look into restoring an expired ordinance that could control rising rents at mobile home parks.

The motion, authored by supervisors Janice Hahn and Sheila Kuehl will ask county departments to examine the feasibility of such an ordinance, which could affect 102 mobile home parks in unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.  A report is due back in 60 days.


Affordability crisis hits LA’s trailer parks

Los Angeles County officials say rising rents and low vacancy rates aren’t limited to rental apartments— the affordability crisis is now hitting the region’s mobile home parks. 

In response, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors will consider initial steps for regulating mobile home plot payments at their meeting Tuesday. A proposal by Supervisor Janet Hahn would instruct the county’s planning department to draft a rent control ordinance for mobile home parks that fall on unincorporated land.
