Revised Legal Article from CAR on Mobilehomes

Published: March 17, 2008

Member Legal Services has published a revised legal article, Mobilehomes (March 17, 2008). It is available on Legal’s What’s New and the Legal Articles pages on C.A.R. Online.  In an attempt to improve the financing of manufactured homes, the California legislature has created a legal distinction between a “mobilehome” and a “manufactured home.”  The definitions hinge on when it was built.  If it was built prior to June 15, 1976, it is a “mobilehome” and if it was built on or after June 15, 1976, it is a manufactured home.  However, for many purposes the names are still interchangeable (e.g., applicability of most provisions in the Mobilehome Residency Law and the accompanying regulations).   In particular, Question 1 (definition) was revised and Question 51 (new disclosure required by mobilehome park) was added.
