MCRC Home Page / Park Closure Information
Overview Owners of manufactured home parks in Oregon face increased pressure to redevelop their land to different more lucrative uses. Between 1997 and 2008, sixty-five (65) manufactured home parks were closed in Oregon resulting in a loss of 2,629 individual spaces.Legislation passed by the Oregon Legislature in 2007 provided a number of protections for manufactured home owners in the event that their park was being redeveloped to another use. Landlords are now required to provide tenants with 365 days notice and pay tenants $5,000, $7,000 or $9,000, depending on the size of their homes. What's more, tenants may be eligible for a tax credit of $5,000.The Manufactured Communities Resource Center works closely with tenants of manufactured home parks that are closing; meeting with the tenants to explain the laws around park closure, providing counseling and service referrals to meet the tenant's relocation needs.
