   An act to amend Section 798.15 of the Civil Code, relating to
mobilehomes.



	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2120, as amended, Silva. Mobilehome parks.
   The Mobilehome Residency Law governs the terms and conditions of
residency in mobilehome parks. Existing law requires the management
of a mobilehome park to provide all homeowners with a copy of the
Mobilehome Residency Law by February 1 of each year, if a significant
change was made in those provisions by legislation enacted in the
prior year.
   This bill would  delete that requirement  
instead require management to notify all homeowners where they can
obtain a copy of that law under the circumstances described above
 .
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.

respect to a sudden or unforeseeable breakdown or deterioration of

written notice shall state the specific condition to be corrected and
an estimate of the charges to be imposed by management if the
