House Guests: The Long and Short Term

When moving into a mobile home park, the park will require information for each person residing in the unit at the time of purchase.  If at any time one of the original residents vacates the unit management should be notified of this change.  If a homeowner decides to allow another person to stay with them in their home, or if they require a caretaker as prescribed by their physician there are rules that govern this in the MRL. Section 798.34 covers these stipulations.

Guests:

A guest is defined under the MRL as someone who stays in your home for less than 20 consecutive days or a total of 30 days per year.  No additional fee can be charged for these people. Management does need to be made aware that these guests will be residing in the unit for the given number of days.

Live-In Caregiver:

This person is described under the MRL as a person at least 18 years of age. The homeowner must have a treatment plan prepared by their physician that states their need for live-in care. If the factors mentioned above are met then management cannot charge a fee for the additional person living in the home. This person has no rights of tenancy within the park, and is required to follow all rules and regulations of the park.
