Glossary

Lot

An area within a manufactured home park designed or used for a manufactured home. (279)

Manufactured Home
A structure that is not a part of real estate, and that has one or more sections that may be transported. The home (or a section of the home) has a width of eight body feet or more and a length of 40 body feet or more. On site the home is 320 square feet or more. The home must be built as a permanent chassis. The home may or may not have a permanent foundation. The home must be designed as a dwelling when connected to the required utilities. (280)

Manufactured Home Park
Any site, lot, field or tract of land where two or more occupied manufactured homes are located, either free of charge or for compensation. This includes any building, structure, tent, vehicle, or enclosure used, or intended to be used, for the manufactured home park. This does not include facilities open three or fewer seasons each year. (281)

Park Owner
The owner of a manufactured home park or any person acting on behalf of the owner to operate the park. (282)

Resident
A manufactured home owner who rents a lot in a manufactured home park. This includes all members of the resident's household. (283)

Resident Association
An organization formed to resolve matters related to living conditions in the manufactured home park. The organization must have written permission from at least 51 percent of the home owners in the park to represent them. (284)

Forms Required by State Law

There are two forms that people buying and selling manufactured homes will use. These are the Notice required by state law (Form 1) and the Safety Feature Disclosure Form (Form 2). The full text of these forms follows.

Form 1: Notice Required by State Law
The following notice must be printed in ten-point, boldface print:

Important Notice:

State law provides special rules for the owners and residents of manufactured home parks.

You may keep your home in the park as long as the park is in operation and you meet your financial obligations, obey state and local laws which apply to the park, obey reasonable park rules, do not substantially annoy or endanger the other residents or substantially endanger park personnel and do not substantially damage the park premises. You may not be evicted or have your rent increased or your services cut for complaining to the park owner or to a governmental official.

If you receive an eviction notice and do not leave the park, the park owner may take you to court. If you lose in court, a sheriff may remove you and your home from the park within seven days. Or, the court may require you to leave the park within seven days but give you 60 days to sell the home within the park.

If you receive an eviction notice for a new or amended rule and the court finds the rule to be reasonable and not a substantial modification of your original agreement, the court will not order you to leave but will order you to comply with the rule within ten days. If you do not comply within the time given or if you violate the rule at a later time, you will be subject to eviction.

All park rules and policies must be reasonable. Your rent may not be increased more than twice a year. Changes made in park rules after you become a park resident will not apply to you if they substantially change your original agreement.

The park may not charge you an entrance fee.

The park may require a security deposit, but the deposit must not amount to more than two months rent.

You have a right to sell the home in the park. But the sale is not final until the park owner approves the buyer as a new resident, and you must advise in writing anyone who wants to buy your home that the sale is subject to final approval by the park owner. You must also disclose in writing certain safety information about your home to anyone who wants to buy it in the park. You must give this information to the buyer before the sale, in writing, on the form that is attached to this notice. You must completely and accurately fill out the form and you and the buyer should each keep a copy.

Your rental agreement and the park rules contain important information about your rights and duties. Read them carefully and keep a copy.

You must be given a copy of the shelter or evacuation plan for the park. This document contains information on where to seek shelter in times of severe weather conditions. You should carefully review the plan and keep a copy.

By February 1 of each year, the park must give you a certificate of rent constituting property taxes as required by Minnesota Statutes, section 290A.19.

For further information concerning your rights, consult a private attorney. The state law governing the rental of lots in manufactured home parks may also be enforced by the Minnesota Attorney General.

Form 2: Safety Feature Disclosure Form

A resident or a resident’s agent shall disclose information about safety features of the home to the prospec-tive buyer. The information must be given to the buyer before the sale, in writing, in the following form: (285).

Safety Feature Disclose Form in PDF . This safety feature disclosure form must be filled out and given to any prospective buyer. (286)
