Division 2, Part 2, Chap. 2.5 of the Civil Code. The Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL) is the “landlord-tenant law” for mobilehome parks, which, like landlord-tenant law and other Civil Code provisions, are enforced in a court of law. The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) does not have authority to enforce violations of the MRL.

JURISDICTION:  The Select Committee is authorized and directed to ascertain, study and analyze problems relating to manufactured homes, mobilehomes and prefabricated structures as a form of housing, including, but not limited to

• the manufacture, sales and financing of such units, taxes and fees imposed upon them;

• the effect of such housing on related land use matters, including, but not limited to, zoning, change of use and affordable housing; and

• the issues unique to both rental and resident-owned mobilehome parks and manufactured housing communities, including, but not limited to, landlord-tenant matters and health and safety code enforcement

with an emphasis on providing legislative recommendations for resolving problems in these areas.

THIS COMMITTEE HAS NO LAW ENFORCEMENT POWERS.
