Is There Light at the End of the Taking’s Tunnel?

For well over 35 years, California property owners have suffered under rules that have required them to travel through the endless black tunnel of the state court system in order to challenge government takings of their property. The villain in this legal saga is something called the Williamson County Doctrine, which has required important takings cases to spend years in the state court system and often without relief. The Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF) has been trying for over 15 years to have this dysfunctional court doctrine reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court. On March 5, 2018 PLF's case on this detrimental procedural doctrine was accepted to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. Given that less than 1% of the cases appealed to the Supreme Court are accepted, this is great news for property owners who have long suffered under government regulations like rent control that are takings under the U.S. Constitution.

Our speaker, PLF Senior Attorney Larry Salzman, will be bringing us the details of this case and what it means to mobile home park owners. Mr. Salzman is the PLF attorney who represented mobile home park owners against the City of Palo Alto over their mobile home park closures regulations, which clearly constituted a taking. He and his fellow attorneys at the non-profit legal foundation, PLF, have an impressive win record of cases defending property rights at the United States Supreme Court. His message and PLF’s mission is critical to businesses, property owners, and mobile home park owners. This update on PLF's work on behalf of property rights is not only timely, but very welcomed!

Park Ownership Educational Workshop Series

Over the past 35 years MHET has focused on the protection of Mobile Home Park/Manufactured Housing Community Owners’ property rights. Key to that goal has always been “education,” not only on political realities impacting their business, but also on the day-to-day operations, which have changed dramatically in the past 35 years. In celebration of our 36th year, we are focusing on an in-depth and unique VIP education series that goes above and beyond what we are able to do at our monthly Forums. This series will cover everything a Park Owner needs to know. Whether you are managing your own park or have a professional company managing your property, it is critically important to know and understand every aspect of the operations.
