MOBILEHOMES: PRESENT REGULATION AND NEEDED REFORMS

Statutory approaches to the mobilehome boom are explored. Regulations now in effect in California reflect the tranditional view of mobilehomes as easily movable vehicles. The relative immobility of modern mobilehomes calls for their recognition as permanent family dwellings. The implications of treating mobilehomes as residences are discussed in the areas of taxation, financing and repossession, and the landlord-tenant relationship. The market for mobilehomes has grown so dramatically in the last 15 years that their fundamental function as a permanent family residance should be recognized by state legislatures.
