SANTA CRUZ >> When mobile-home owners get into a dispute with the park owners from whom they rent their lot, their only real recourse is to hire an attorney and take the property owner to court.
State law gives the residents a number of rights — on paper — but there is no active enforcement and many elderly and low-income residents can’t afford the legal fees to make their case, advocates say. Instead, they are left at risk of negligence or unequal treatment on the part of park owners.
