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.
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

Thirty-seven mobile home parks were damaged or destroyed by the
fire and most were reserved for ages 55 and up. Only a dozen
mobile home parks so far have been able to get permits
to start repairs, despite the desperate need for affordable
housing in the area.
The story of the parks is important because the wholesale
destruction has revealed gaps in the public and private response
to disasters in mobile home parks, according to interviews with
owners and state and local officials and public records. Most
owners had vastly inadequate insurance and might not be able to
cover the costs of repairs. Confusion about jurisdiction over the
parks — including among government officials themselves — has led
to delays and frustrations.

A local law governing rent hikes in mobile home parks won’t be
coming to Long Beach any time soon.
The City Council voted unanimously at its Tuesday, Dec. 10,
meeting to receive a report on the concept without directing city
staff to create a potential ordinance or prohibition on rent
increases in mobile home parks.
The decision brought an end to the months-long debate over
whether tenant protections that had been enshrined in local and
state laws should be extended to people living in mobile homes.
