Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Ordinance

On October 28, 2021 the Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Ordinance (MHRSO) became effective. In September of 2022 the City of Mountain View made some changes to the  MHRSO. The Rental Housing Committee is tasked with administration and implementation of the MHRSO and adopted Regulations to further detail certain key components of the MHRSO.

Key Elements of the MHRSO

    • Rent levels need to be rolled back to the amount charged on March 16, 2021
  • Protects mobile home tenants with Just Cause eviction protections (mobile home owners are covered under State law)
