Mobile Home Community Approval
Almost all communities require that a prospective purchaser of a manufactured or mobile home be approved by the landlord as a tenant before the purchase is final. Be sure you have the approval in writing before committing to the purchase. The landlord is required to provide you with a current copy of the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS), Chapter 118B at the time you sign the rental or lease agreement.
The Division’s Landlord/Tenant Investigators are responsible for investigating complaints involving tenants and park management or owners. The Investigators make sure that both the residents and landlords comply with NRS 118B, which protects the rights of both tenants and park management. All complaints must be made in writing to the Division. All complaints to the Division and are considered confidential. In some cases, mediation may be required by the investigators to resolve the dispute.
