Manufactured Home Parks Registration

Overview

New York State has approximately 84,956 manufactured home households in nearly 1,818 manufactured home parks. They comprise a vulnerable community that often encounters difficulties due to the fact that the majority of manufactured home households are both homeowners and tenants. The uniqueness of this type of tenancy combined with the high cost of moving the units and, in certain areas of New York State, the scarce number of parks with vacancies, makes tenants' rights of the utmost concern to the manufactured home park tenants. New York State Homes and Community Renewal is here to help.

    How to File a Complaint

    Section 233 of the New York State Real Property Law ( RPL 233) governs tenants’ rights in manufactured home parks.  DHCR has the authority to enforce RPL 233. The Manufactured Homes Program was created to allow tenants to inquire about their rights under RPL 233 or initiate complaints if they feel their rights are being violated.  DHCR trained staff work with park owners and tenants to resolve disputes in compliance with the requirements of the statute.

     

    This complaint form is for tenants currently residing in a manufactured home park in New York State.  A manufactured home park is defined as a contiguous parcel of privately owned land which is used for the accommodation of three or more manufactured homes occupied for year-round living.

     

    It is advised that the tenant first contact the park owner regarding the complaint for possible resolution before filing the complaint with DHCR MHP.

     

    Please be advised, by submitting this complaint you give permission for DHCR MHP to provide the park owner with a copy of your complaint as part of the complaint processing.
