Mobilehome Park Rent Control/Stabilization Ordinances
Approximately 100 California jurisdictions have passed Mobilehome Rark Rent Control/Stabilization Ordinances to help preserve the affordable housing which parks provide. A majority of these were initiated between the early 1980s and late 1990s. Only a few have been enacted since. RCOs/RSOs limit rent increases to once per year with the increase frequently linked to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

Model Rent Stabilization Ordinances
These ordinances have components not found in other, older ordinances, such as: month-to-month rental agreement protection for prospective tenants/residents, no rent increase permitted on sale of mobilehome if owners change more than once in a given period of time (i.e. 2 to 5 years), no rent increase upon the removal of an older mobilehome by its owner to bring in new one, specifics of allowable charges for pass through costs for capital replacements and more.
These ordinances are found at the county level, where they affect home owners found within unincorporated county areas.
