In California, mobile homes are regulated by the
Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL). Like other laws, the MRL is enforced by civil courts. If a park
owner wishes to evict you from a mobile home park for nonpayment of rent
or violating park rules, they must utilize the court. Similarly, you must
bring legal action in civil court if you (as a manufactured homeowner)
have a grievance against a park owner.
In some cases, the California Department of Housing and Community Development
(HCD) can help you find assistance for MRL-related complaints. State and
Federal departments can handle some complaints, as well. In most situations,
however, you will need an attorney to protect your rights and interests.

to the HCD’s Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program (MRLPP).
Before you do anything else, explore the MRLPP by calling (800) 952-8356, emailing
visiting the HCD website.
Depending on the nature of your complaint, you may also want to contact
one of the following state or federal departments:
