WEST SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Ed Chau (D-Monterey Park) recently joined Director Ben Metcalf, from the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), and others, to announce the commencement of the Register Your Mobilehome California program.    

“Thousands of Californians living in mobilehomes cannot properly register and title their home, due to unpaid back taxes that were incurred by a prior owner and not the new owner,” said Assemblymember Chau. “In effect, this leaves the new owner in a situation where they paid for the home, but have no meaningful proof of ownership, which not only exposes them to potentially thousands of dollars in taxes and penalties, but makes it impossible to transfer or sell the home, prohibits them from legally making repairs, prevents them from obtaining fire or flood insurance, and even subjects them to eviction.”
