Has your rent for your mobile home just drastically gone up? Think you have no choice but to pay the huge increase? Think again. You may have recourse against the high rent. Don’t automatically assume that you don’t. It may be helpful to consult with a renters rights attorney. While California state law does not cover rent increases, some areas have local rent control ordinances which you may not be aware of. There are over 100 cities and counties within the state which do cover rent increases. See Civil Code Sections 798.17(a) and 1947.8.

 

In addition, there are some situations in which a rent control ordinance might be exempted. Renters must be provided with written notice 90 days in advance of the increase. Many landlords do not comply with the Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL).

 

If you are the victim of what you may believe is an illegal increase in rent, don’t just stand there and do nothing. Fight for your rights. Get some help. Contact an attorney who deals with renters rights law. You need someone on your side who will stand up for your rights.

 

Mobile home park residents are covered by state laws which help to protect your rights as a renter.  The eviction process is clearly spelled out in the California Civil Code under the Mobilehome Residency Law ( MRL).  You have certain rights under this provision of the law.  It is important that you know your rights;  what the mobile home park owner can and cannot do.  Due to the fact that it is a very serious situation if you have been given an eviction notice, you must take immediate action to hopefully be able to stay in your home.  Nobody wants to be evicted.  You need the help of a renters rights lawyer to guide you through this difficult time.

 

California law states that the landlord must have just cause for evicting a resident. Some examples of just cause would be failing to pay the rent on time, illegal activity, being a danger to others, and/or being in violation of the park rules.  If you have received a 3 day notice to quit, you have the right to “cure” the violation.  In the case of not paying the rent on time, if you pay the rent you have cured the violation.  If you do not pay the rent, a 60 day notice of eviction will be issued.

 

If you find yourself in the terrible situation of being subjected to a possible eviction from your mobile home, don’t do nothing.  It will not help.  Seek out the advice and counsel of an experienced renters rights lawyer.
