Fees on Your Rental Statement

Many mobile home owners see fees on their rent statements each month and have questions, the main one being can the park charge additional fees on top of the rent?

The answer is yes. The park may charge you a reasonable fee for services actually rendered if the fees are listed in your rental agreement or if you have been given a 60-day written notice of a new fee.  Some parks also charge ‘pass through’ fees for other park maintenance costs (resurfacing the parks’ roads, replacing of the clubhouse roof, etc.)  The Mobilehome Residency Law specifies that the management cannot charge homeowners certain fees, such as fees for guests who stay fewer than 20 consecutive days or a total of 30 days in a calendar year, fees for entry, installation or utility hookup charges as a condition of tenancy, enforcement of most park rules and regulations, or extra fees for additional members of your immediate family.
