AB 1943 (Waldron). Manufactured housing: foundation systems: installation: common interest developments.


Would provide that a modular or mobile homeowner, who owns a separate interest within a common interest development, is deemed to have complied with building permit requirements, to install the home on a foundation system.

Current Status: Pending

FindHOALaw Quick Summary:

Existing law requires an owner or licensed contractor to obtain a building permit to install a manufactured home, mobile home, or commercial modular on a foundation system by submitting, among other things, written evidence that the owner owns, holds title to, or is purchasing real property where the mobile home is to be installed.  A willful violation of those provisions is a crime.  This bill would amend Health and Safety Code 18551 to provide that written evidence that the manufactured home, mobile home or commercial modular owner owns a separate interest in a common interest development would be deemed to comply with this requirement.

This bill would take effect immediately as an urgency statute.

“Due to a gap in existing law, 75 homeowners who lost their homes in the recent Lilac Fire and other natural disasters are unable to secure affordable financing to rebuild their homes. In order to ensure prompt recovery as a result of the widespread damage caused by the Lilac Fire, as well as other recent disasters, it is necessary for this act to take effect immediately.”
