Mobilehome Park Maintenance Inspections

In accordance with California Health and Safety Code section 18400.1 , HCD conducts Mobilehome Park Maintenance (MPM) inspections to ensure compliance with health and safety laws. Inspections include the general areas, buildings, equipment, and utility systems of mobilehome parks, each individual lot, and the exterior portions of individual manufactured homes and mobilehomes in each park inspected. When a "Notice of Planned Inspection" has been posted in a conspicuous location within the mobilehome park, the inspection will be conducted within 30 to 60 days of the "date posted" shown on the Notice of Planned Inspection. At least 30 days prior to the inspection of the mobilehome park, an individual written notice of the inspection will be provided to each resident.

The resources below provide additional, detailed information regarding inspections, violations, and code requirements. The booklets and video are designed to help park owners and residents living in a park that has been selected prepare for the MPM inspection.
