Sunnyvale Mobile Home Park Alliance
How We Came to be
In the fall of 2015 the Carlyle Firm purchased Plaza del Rey Mobile Home park. They raised the rents 8% and increased the price of spaces to new home owners 50% higher than other Mobile Home Parks within a one mile radius.
The Plaza del Rey Residents Association (PDRra) presented a proposal to the Sunnyvale City council for an ordinance for Rent Stabilization. During the presentation many residents from other parks expressed a concern for rate increases in their parks and stood in solidarity with PDR.
SMHPA (Sunnyvale Mobile Home Park Alliance) was formed to address these issues as well as the out dated laws in the California Mobile Home Residency Laws (MRL) and to begin to look for change Nationwide.
An Alliance of Mobile Home Owners in Sunnyvale, California Mobile Home Parks to protect home owner rights, to address homeowner concerns, and to provide information and resources to achieve these ends.
