Mobile home park rules

Is it legal for a mobile home park to tell you who can and can't live in your home? I find it hard to believe that it's legal for the owner of the park to tell you that you can't have friends come and live with you because they are a "roomer and boarder" and that "roomer and boarders" are not allowed. How is that legal?

check your contract...

I wouldn't think they have the right but best to look at the contract you signed when you moved in to that trailer park. I know different parks have different rules.

Contract

Technically, unless you're a family or their name is on the title for your trailer, they're a "roomer and boarder". You don't own the property your trailer is sitting on, therefore you don't get to make the rules.  
 
As a general rule, I don't think any of the parks allow rentals.

Legalities of mobile park homes

If a person owns the park, it''s to their discretion and rules. They own the land.  
 
Even though you''ve bought the physical home, it''s under the contract of the mobile home park owner, as the land is just rented.  
 
If they are nervous or worried about your roommates or worried about people renting it out to whomever, it''s their call. Not unlike an apartment building.  
 
It's just one of those things. Most trailer park owners like to keep a nice, quiet place. If they start relaxing the rules, it could go south with a free for all.  
 
Right or wrong, it''s their call.

Would suggest that if you have concerns contact the residential tenancy branch . They will probably need a copy of the rental agreement to determine if it is allowed or not .  
 
Because you own the land or the home you still have to abide by the rules of the residential tenancy act. That is both the landlord and the tenant. If one party does something outside of that the acts rules the other party could be held legally liable.

This is true, Oh Canada.  
 
Good advice.

.

If it's who I think you're referring to, I'm sorry but it says right in the "hand/rule book" you're suppose to abide by. "no roommates allowed." You signed it, you agreed to it, not much you can do - and yes it sucks. I'm on your side.
