Manufactured Home Lot Rental Act; manufactured home park; termination due to sale of park; notice. Provides that where the sale of a manufactured home park is due to a change in the use of all or any part of a manufactured home park by the landlord, including conversion to hotel, motel, or other commercial use, planned unit development, rehabilitation, or demolition, a 180-day written notice is required to terminate the rental agreement. The bill also requires a manufactured home park owner who offers or lists the park for sale to a third party to provide written notice to (i) the Department of Housing and Community Development, which shall make the information available on its website within five days of receipt, and (ii) each tenant of the manufactured home park at least 90 days prior to accepting an offer. The bill provides that tenants who have been evicted from a manufactured home park have 90 days after a judgment has been entered in which to rent the manufactured home to a subtenant, contingent on the subtenant's making a rental application to the manufactured home park owner within such 90-day period and approval by the home park owner of such rental application from the subtenant. This bill incorporates HB 1163 and HB 1229. Read the Bill »
