TITLE: CONCERNING THE REQUIREMENT OF PROVIDING NOTICE OF CERTAIN PROVISIONS OF THE “MOBILE HOME PARK ACT” TO A MOBILE HOME OWNER WHOSE TENANCY IS BEING TERMINATED.
Summary of Assessment
This bill requires landlords or management of mobile home parks to keep a copy of the “Mobile Home Park Act” on file for public review and provide notice of certain provisions of the Act to a mobile home owner whose tenancy is being terminated. The bill specifies the content of the notice.
The bill allows the landlord or management of mobile home parks to commence legal action for eviction after the last day of the notice. The bill requires the tenant to appear in court to defend against the eviction action. If the court rules in favor of the landlord or management, the home owner will have at least 48 hours from the time of the ruling to remove the mobile home and vacate the premises.
This bill would not affect state or local government revenue or expenditures. Therefore, the bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact. The bill would become effective on January 1, 1999.
