The courts have now sided against the City of Huntington Beach in the fight to sell parcels of the park land to it's residents.


Here is a snippet of the article:

"An Orange County Superior Court judge ruled against Huntington Beach and sided with a mobile home park owner looking to convert the land from rentals to for-sale.

Pacific Mobile Home Park, at Huntington Street and Atlanta Avenue, filed a lawsuit in August claiming the city broke the law when it turned down the park owner's request to convert the land and offer renters the opportunity to purchase the parcels under their coaches.

The court's decision, issued June 28, set aside the City Council's previous vote and requires the city to reconsider the application."

We will have to keep an eye on how this progresses.

Residents fear that the park will be sold and turned into condos and that they will kick out the residents, forcing them to find another space for their home. This simply does not happen, but in theory it could.

It doesn't happen because the park owners have to buy out the residents at fair market value, then build the condos, then sell for a profit. This just doesn't make economic sense.

It looks like the park owner of Pacific MHP thinks that the best way to convert the park is to offer individual lots to the current occupants of that space. This may be good in the long run, but typically people who live in a mobile home don't have the means to make this kind of investment, so I suspect that not many will be sold.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Your post was timely as I have just received my first dissertation from a writer and wanted to gauge the quality. I have never used best-dissertations.org writing service but my friend has and gives a glowing review. I think that people looking for these services can try this one out.

Au Contraire
by: John DL Arendsen

We've been involved with "MH sub-divisions" and "Condo Conversions" since they started a couple of decades ago. It's actually a great way for MH owners to control their destiny and own the dirt and/or airspace under and around them.

There's several ways to go about purchasing your lot. Additionally, I don't think the residents of this particular park would really have much trouble doing so. The homes will need to have been built before June 15, 1976 and will have to have an engineered certified foundation system installed in order to qualify for an FHA guaranteed loan, however.

As far as closing down a park is concerned? It is quite difficult to do in California. There are rules and regulations under the California Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) Mobile Home Parks Act, Title 25, "Relocation Act" that very tightly regulate this type of activity. Any California MH resident interested in a MH community conversion be it a sub division or condo conversion may want to refer to this. Hope this helps.

Ventura County Mobile Home Parks
by: Lorraine

I live in Ventura County and we have had several of the parks try to convert space rentals to individually-owned lots. This has been going on for 7 years and not one of the parks has succeeded in this conversion. The feelings are mixed (by the mobile home owners) on whether this would be good or not because most of the people cannot afford the cost of the land. All the owners of the parks are offering current residents to continue renting if they do not want to purchase the lots.
If the conversion would happen, the individual owners would pay an "HOA" (Homeowners Association fee) which would be much less that the current space rent. But, at the same time, those who didn't wish to purchase the lots lose the protection of rent control on those lots. So the fear is the park owners will raise the space rents to an exorbitant amount.
I will keep you posted.......
