Mobilehomes

   

The City of Chula Vista has 31 mobilehome and trailer parks, with nearly 3,600 spaces.  These communities provide a variety of living styles from family parks, senior parks, smaller trailer parks, to large communities with amenities.  For a full list of parks within the City, click here.

 

Mobilehome living is dictated by a variety of agencies.  For a list of the most frequently asked questions and contacts please click here

 

The State Office of the Mobilehome Ombudsman is a complaint processing Office that primarily assists the public with questions or problems associated with the various aspects of manufactured home (mobilehome) living. This includes complaints with manufactured home dealer, sales, and warranties.  This Office also processes complaints associated with other programs under the review of state HCD's Division of Code and Standards (Registration & Titling, Employee Housing, Manufactured Housing, and State Mobilehome Residency Law).

 

The City provides a variety of services related to mobilehomes including:

 

    • Rent Review ("Rent Control")
    • Mobilehome Repairs - The Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP) provides low interest and/or deferred loans to mobilehome owners to repair health- and safety-related issues.  For more information, click here.
    • Title 25 Inspections - The City’s Building Division has the responsibility for enforcement of the State Mobilehome Park Act.  Please contact them at (619) 691-5101 for more information.
    • Mobilehome Park Closures

 

Rent Review ("Rent Control")

The Housing Division implements a rent stabilization process for eligible mobilehome residents, under Chula Vista Municipal Code Chapter 9.50 - Mobilehome Park Space Rent Review (3/14/13).  Residents are eligible for rent control if they meet certain criteria and have paid the Administrative Fee for that fiscal year, to learn more click here.  Rent control limits the increase a park owner can impose to a resident once per year to the Current Annual Permissive Increase (2/20/14).  If a park owner proposes something over the permissive rate for that year a resident may petition the increase to the Mobilehome Rent Review Commission.    

 

Mobilehome Rent Review Commission (MHRRC)

The MHRRC acts as an unbiased, "due process" decision-maker regarding mobilehome park rent disputes.  The MHRRC consists of up to five voting members and up to two non-voting, general ex-officio members, all appointed by the City Council.  A non-voting, staff ex-officio member also sits on the Commission and is designated by the City Manager.
