Mobile home tenancies create a unique landlord/tenant relationship. While the tenant owns the mobile home, the tenant rents space in the mobile home park. Once the tenant hooks up utilities and makes other improvements, the “mobile” home is far less than mobile. Both landlords and tenants need to understand the relationship and obligations in a mobile home tenancy to prevent problems. This relationship is governed by special statutes that differ from the general landlord-tenant law. These special laws regulate the rental rate and charges and the lease provisions, the rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant, the termination of the tenancy and the eviction procedures, and the purchase and sale of mobile homes in a park.
