Making Sense of State Mobile Home Regulations

In Florida, a mobile home is defined as a residential structure that is transportable in one or more sections and is at least eight feet wide. All rental amounts must be disclosed in a rental agreement and increases in rent must be disclosed at least 90 days prior to the effective date. While a landlord can evict a tenant from a mobile home park, they must abide by specific laws.

The grounds for eviction from a mobile home park are:

  • Neglecting to pay rent
  • Violating a park rule or regulation
  • Conviction of a federal or state law which is considered harmful to the safety of other residents
  • Change in the use of land occupied by the mobile home park

If a tenant has a complaint against the mobile home park owner, they can mail, email, or fax their complaint to the appropriate parties. Most complaints concern unfair treatment, a violation of proper eviction procedures, or issues with a rental agreement.

As a mobile home occupant, you deserve to have your complaints heard. Many often go overlooked, simply because of the influx of complaints and requests that flood the current system.
