Assemblymember Waldron introduced California AB 1943 to assist mobile and manufactured home owners located in subdivided mobilehome parks. This bill clarifies Health and Safety Code section 18551 to include all subdivided mobilehome parks, including condominium type ownership (single family manufactured housing condominium communities). This bill clarifies that mobile and manufactured home owners located in a subdivided mobilehome park may install permanent foundation systems resulting in attachment to the land with recordation of the appropriate documentation (433A).
The physical and legal attachment of the mobile and manufactured homes to the land is important is because it opens the door to standardized financing to sale or buy the home, for refinancing, including home equity loans to rehabilitate the homes and reverse mortgages for the seniors, and other benefits.
A copy of a AB 1943 Fact Sheet public.pdf is attached at this point. This bill will assist in the preservation of an affordable housing stock without costing tax payers.
A special thank you to Marie Waldron for agreeing to carry this bill, a thank you to the local jurisdictions the County of San Diego, City of Carlsbad and City of San Marcos for supporting this bill and a thank you to the over 300 hundred businesses and individuals supporting this bill.
The first hearing date for the bill has been tentatively set for April 9, 2018. If you would like to join in supporting the preservation of this housing stock, it’s not too late. Please send your support letters to:
