Mobile Home Rights Bill On Governor’s Desk

State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson’s bill to increase mobile home residents’ rights passed the Senate and now sits on Governor Brown’s desk. The bill, SB 510, would allow — but not force — municipal governments to reject the subdividing of mobile home parks if most residents object; existing law doesn’t given residents a say. According to a statement from Jackson, the state is home to more than 5,000 such parks, including the South Coast’s own Rancho Mobile Home Park, the subdivision of which has cost Goleta a half million dollars in legal fees.
