The Ventura County Board of Supervisors appointed a five member Mobile Home Park Rent Review Board (RRB). The RRB is responsible for rent stabilization through the Mobile Home Park Rent Control Ordinance (Ordinance). RRB Staff reviews mobile home park owners’ proposed rent change applications for completeness and consistency with the Ordinance, which was adopted to protect the owners of mobile dwelling units (i.e., homeowners) from unreasonable rent increases, while at the same time recognizing the need of Mobile Home Park Owners to receive a fair return on their investment and rental income sufficient to cover expenses.

Mobile Home Parks within Unincorporated Ventura County
There are a total of 25 mobile home parks located in the unincorporated Ventura County. Of these parks, 24 are regulated by the Ordinance. Only the Oak Haven Mobile Home Park, located in Supervisorial District 1, is entirely exempt from the Ventura County Rent Control Ordinance due to its date of construction having occurred after 1982 (Section 81002(b) of the Ventura County Rent Control Ordinance). Most of the mobile home parks in unincorporated Ventura County (18 of 25) are located in Supervisorial District 1. The remaining seven mobile home parks are located in Supervisorial Districts 2, 3, and 5. Supervisorial District 4 has no mobile home parks subject to the Ventura County Rent Control Ordinance.

Notice: Unregistered Mobilehomes Now Eligible for Relief from Fees and Back Taxes
As many as one-third of mobilehomes and manufactured homes are not properly registered with the state. Many owners are not aware that this needs to be done, even years after their home has been purchased. If you think the title and registration of your home may not have been properly registered, now you don’t have to pay past-due fees and taxes to have the registration completed. The state Department of Housing and Community Development has started a program called Register Your Mobilehome California, to waive registration fees and back taxes for mobilehome and manufactured homeowners, potentially saving them thousands of dollars. Having a proper title and registration allows homeowners to legally transfer their homes, get building permits, qualify for insurance and receive other financial assistance.
