CHAPTER 1. General Provisions and Definitions [19960 - 19961]
  ( Chapter 1 added by Stats. 1969, Ch. 1422. )


This part shall be known and may be cited as the “California Factory-Built Housing Law.”

(Added by Stats. 1969, Ch. 1422.)


The Legislature hereby finds and declares that in an effort to meet the housing needs within the State of California, the private housing and construction industry has developed mass production techniques which can substantially reduce housing construction costs, and that the mass production of housing, consisting primarily of factory manufacture of dwelling units or habitable rooms thereof, presents unique problems with respect to the establishment of uniform health and safety standards and inspection procedures. The Legislature further finds and declares that by minimizing the problems of standards and inspection procedures, it is demonstrating its intention to encourage the reduction of housing construction costs and to make housing and home ownership more feasible for all residents of the state.
