Schwarzenegger funny thinking is that he is afraid the home owners to block the park owners, but he allows the park owners to block home owners to sell their mobile home by increasing rent unlimitedly and because of ""why buy a home in a park where it could convert to condo's tomorrow."

Tailored trailers: the return of the mobile home
However, it’s not all rosy: landowners wield a lot of power over their sites and, it’s claimed, often harass and intimidate residents.“The Mobile Home Act of 1983 was supposed to give homeowners security but there’s a need for more protection from unscrupulous landowners,” says Ball.
Site landlords are also entitled to a 10 per cent commission on the sale of a home but many try to prevent residents selling on the open market. This, says Ball, is because they prefer to sell directly to new residents, getting a chance to renegotiate rents and profit from the entire sale.(pdf format)

Jeff Ackerman: Elderly find mobile homes anything but mobile (PDF)
The Union of Grass Valley
I'm a HUGE fan of older people and unless we at least consider some sort of rent control on our local mobile home parks, many of our older people will be homeless soon. For them, it's a race between death and despair.
What some of you may not know is that there are hundreds of older people trapped inside their so-called “mobile” homes today. After all, most of those homes really aren't mobile. And, if you could move one, it would cost more to do it than the home is worth today...

Fear is a powerful tool, as most of us today are well aware. And some of these mobile home park owners seem to know how to use fear to their advantage. An 85-year-old is no match for a smooth-talking suit from Los Angeles.

Mobile homes should be banded in every state! You can buy a modular home to which is 500% safer for the same money and doesn't decrease in value. The problem is that the builders and mobile home dealers are greedy people that don't live in mobile homes. They don't care if your family or members of your family die in these traps ! But as long as the federal government and the American people allow them to operate they will continue. So if you live in one ! Stop blaming anyone for scamming you ! The same way you brought that trailer ! You can buy a modular home..

Read this you will understand the problem
All of us want to leave the park, but how? By abandoning our $70,000 property? We are not rich enough to buy the house. We all felt in the trap of the con artist at the time to buy the house, how to escape? Ignore the written contract of the con artist &#8230; to get the eviction? We regret to buy a mobile home and want to escape but how?
We have to fight: 1) let people know the scam 2) let the criminal knows their crime and stop to increase unfair rent 3) awake the public conscience 4) Let the law makers know their stupidity and change the law 5) cause the FTC and government know the scam to protect their people 6) Most people do not know that the park owners steal their house value, they need to be awaken
Mobile Home Park is big business like mafia. They buy most of Legislators and Sacramento. We cannot bring them to small court without retaliation. The CA law obviously supports the Park Owners. Only Fed government can fight them &#8230;.
We appreciate any suggestion to solve this problem. Most of people in the park are scared because they do not want to lose their property. Just a few like me to fight.
I have been documenting for 10 years about this very same problem. I made it clear even if I lose in court I will publish this book about these types of scams and the people involved whether they like it or not. Funny to me is I actually learned how to scam them but I would prefer the legal route and have them held accountable in the end. Keep in touch I am almost done.....
