Rent Controlled Spaces at Mobile Home Parks

This web application shows the location of Mobile Home Parks with the number of Rent Controlled Spaces within Oceanside.

Mobile Home Rent Control
The Manufactured Home Fair Practices Act was originally adopted by the Oceanside City Council on June 23, 1982, and was codified as Chapter 16B of the Oceanside City Code (Ordinance No. 82-27).

The space rent limitations, also known as rent control, provided by the Ordinance became effective January 1, 1985. Prior to enacting the ordinance, the City Council had determined that there existed in Oceanside a shortage of rental spaces for manufactured homes, which shortage had resulted in low vacancy rates and rapidly escalating rents. The stated purpose of the Ordinance was to protect residents of such parks from unreasonable rental increases, while at the same time preserving for the park owners a “just and reasonable return” on the park owner’s investment.

City of Oceanside Lot Split Map Viewer

This viewer has been prepared as a tool for researching Lot Split Maps in the City of Oceanside. City of Oceanside Subdivision Ordinance No. 946, Article V, Section 500 regulated the subdivision of one or more lots into four or fewer lots from October 10, 1956 until March 4, 1972. During this period all parcels that were not created by a recorded subdivision map in the City of Oceanside were required to be created through the Lot Split process. More than 500 of these maps were generated to subdivide land but not recorded in the Office of the County Recorder of the San Diego County.

Subdivision Map Act Section 66412.6(a) states;

(a) For purposes of this division or of a local ordinance enacted pursuant thereto, any parcel created prior to March 4, 1972, shall be conclusively presumed to have been lawfully created if the parcel resulted from a division of land in which fewer than five parcels were created and if at the time of the creation of the parcel, there was no local ordinance in effect which regulated divisions of land creating fewer than five parcels.

Any parcel that was created through this process is deemed to have been lawfully created per the Subdivision Map Act. For your convenience these maps can be viewed or downloaded by clicking on the link provided in the Identify pop-up window. Original copies of these maps are available for viewing in the Development Services Department at the Civic Center. For questions, call City of Oceanside Engineering department at (760) 435-4373.
