Mobile Home Park Laws in Massachusetts
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has very explicit manufactured home laws and regulations regarding mobile home parks.
Many laws passed in Mass in relation to manufactured home communities have been put in place to protect residents from unfair landlords. Some mobile home associations also work to protect residents and landlords.
Laws pertaining to lot rents, late fees, and other charges explicitly dictate how and when fees can be changed by the mobile home park owner.
Other laws explain how utilities are to be billed and what a landlord can legally charge mobile home park residents for utility services.

Mobile Home Community Rules
Massachusetts is one of many states that require mobile home communities to draft rules that govern their resident parks.
The state provides guidelines and a sample community rulebook that mobile home park owners can model.
Once a community has drafted their rules & regulations, they must submit their guidelines for approval by the state.
