New Mexico Mobile Home Park Law
Nov. 14, 2020
A mobile home park resident relies on the park owner to properly maintain the park. The park owner is also responsible for honoring the resident's legal rights.
Issues that can arise with park management involve plumbing and sewer system, water, electrical, and other utilities, drainage, and foundation issues. Other issues can exist that cause physical injury or illness. At times, park owners may harass residents or interfere with resident's property rights. Residents also have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination.
Waiting for the park owner to do the right thing is rarely a good strategy. If you believe that a park owner has violated your rights, you should seek legal counsel. Mobile homes parks fall under special laws in New Mexico, including the Mobile Home Park Act. Laws that apply in other situations may not apply to mobile home parks or may apply differently. A lawyer can help you understand and enforce your rights.
