This is part 8 of my blog series about renting out community-owned manufactured homes and complying with the landlord tenant law.

Violation of Rules/Lease

Notices for a violation of rules and/or lease covenants are also different between owner-occupied tenancies and community-owned rentals. In an owner-occupied manufactured home, management must give the resident homeowner at least one 7-day notice of a rule violation and then a 60-day notice to terminate tenancy for the rule violation.

In a community-owned rental, if the tenant has violated a covenant in the lease, the community owner need only to provide the tenant with a 3-day notice to perform Covenants or Quit (if the violation can be cured) or a 3-day Notice to Quit (if the violation cannot be cured). An unlawful detainer action can be filed immediately after the 3 days are up if the violation is not cured and the tenant remains in possession.

Renting Out Community-Owned Manufactured Homes and Complying with The Landlord Tenant Law (Part 7)

This is part 7 of my blog series about renting out community-owned manufactured homes and complying with the landlord tenant law.

Notices for Failure to Pay Rent

In an owner-occupied manufactured home governed by the MRL, the community owner must give the homeowner a 3-day notice to pay rent or quit as well as a 60-day notice to terminate possession of the premises to terminate the tenancy for non-payment of rent. The MRL requires that all termination notices to homeowner give the homeowner at least 60 days to either remove their manufactured home or sell the manufactured home in place.

In a community-owned rental if the tenant fails to timely pay the rent, the landlord need only give the tenant a 3-day notice to pay rent or quit. If the tenant fails to pay the full amount owed within the 3 days, the landlord can immediately file an unlawful detainer and request possession of the property. No 60-day notice is required in a failure to pay rent situation.
