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.

Urgent-Tell Your Senator to Vote NO on SB 999 (Umberg)

Attention WMA Members: WMA needs your help immediately to defeat the passage of Senate Bill 999 by Senator Tom Umberg.  

SB 999 seeks to effectively prohibit long-term leases, and it even goes so far as to extend its effect on leases signed and executed on or after February 13, 2020.


Voters could change California’s landmark property tax law after measure qualifies for ballot

California voters this November will likely see an initiative that would undo part of a landmark law that has capped property tax increases for decades.

The so-called “split-roll” initiative would change how California taxes properties, retaining a limit on tax increases for residential properties but allowing new assessments of commercial sites worth more than $3 million.

Gavin Newsom issues statewide mask order: Californians must wear face coverings in public

Californians must wear masks in all indoor public spaces under a mandate announced Thursday by Gov. Gavin Newsom designed to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The new rules require face coverings when people are riding in taxis and rideshare cars, taking public transit, standing in line to enter a building or walking through common areas like hallways, stairways, elevators and parking garages.



City of Sacramento asks judge to allow it to keep rent control initiative off ballot

The city of Sacramento has asked a judge to allow it to keep a rent control initiative off the Nov. 3 ballot.

The lawsuit, which the city filed Monday in Sacramento County Superior Court, names Michelle Pariset as a defendant.

Pariset is one of three women who were listed as “proponents” when their 2018 ballot initiative gathered more than 44,000 signatures, enough to qualify it for the city ballot.
