CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 861


Introduced by Assembly Member Bennett

February 17, 2021


An act to amend Section 798.23 of the Civil Code, relating to mobilehome parks.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 861, as introduced, Bennett. Mobilehome parks: rental restrictions: management.
Existing law, the Mobilehome Residency Law, regulates mobilehome parks and subjects the owner of the park and any person employed by the park to all park rules and regulations to the same extent as residents and their guests. Existing law exempts from those provisions any rules and regulations governing the age of residents or guests, and actions that are taken to fulfill a park owner’s maintenance, management, and business operation responsibilities.
This bill would require management to comply with a rule or regulation prohibiting the renting or subleasing of the homeowner’s mobilehome or mobilehome space and would prohibit management from renting a mobilehome owned by the park except to a person employed by the park.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 798.23 of the Civil Code is amended to read:

798.23.
 (a) The owner of the park, and any person employed by the park, shall be subject to, and comply with, all park rules and regulations, to the same extent as residents and their guests.
(b) Subdivision (a) of this section does not apply to either of the following:
(1) Any rule or regulation that governs the age of any resident or guest.
(2) Acts of a park owner or park employee which are undertaken to fulfill a park owner’s maintenance, management, and business operation responsibilities.
(c) Notwithstanding subdivision (b), the owner of the park, and a person employed by the park, shall be subject to, and comply with, all rules and regulations that prohibit a homeowner from renting or subleasing the homeowner’s mobilehome or mobilehome space. Where a rule or regulation has been enacted that prohibits either renting or subleasing by a homeowner, management shall not directly rent a mobilehome owned by the park owner except in the case of a mobilehome being rented or subleased to a person employed by the park.
