Bill Summary

The act gives home owners in a mobile home park the opportunity to make an offer to buy the park if the landlord anticipates selling it or changing the use of the land. A landlord must give notice of a pending sale to the home owners, the applicable municipality or county, the division of housing in department of local affairs, and each home owners' association, residents' association, or similar body that represents the residents of the park. A landlord must give notice of a pending change of use of the land to all home owners of the park at least 12 months before the change of use occurs. After receiving notice of a pending sale or change of use, home owners have 90 days to make an offer to purchase and arrange financing if necessary. A purchase may be made by an association representing at least 51% of the home owners. The landlord may request that information relating to any pending offer be kept confidential and, if the landlord so requests, the association is required to do so.

If a sale of a mobile home park occurs and the home owners are not the buyers, the landlord must send the municipality or county and the division of housing an affidavit of compliance with the requirements of the act.

The notice and purchase-option provisions do not apply if the proposed sale is to a family member of the landlord, another closely affiliated person or entity, or someone who is already a cotenant of the property or if a transfer occurs due to inheritance or eminent domain.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
