Mobile Home Park Sale Requirements

Effective June 30, 2020, the Colorado General Assembly added Section 38-12-217 to the Mobile Home Park Act.  In general terms, section 38-12-217 requires mobile home park owners intending to sell their mobile home park to:

  1. Give notice to all tenant home owners and the municipality or county where the park is located of the park owner's intent to sell the park;
  2. Give notice to each tenant home owner, any homeowners association, the municipality or county where the park is located, and the Colorado Division of Housing (Division) within 14 days after the landlord lists the park for sale. Pursuant to 8 CCR 1302-15, Rule 8.1, a park is considered listed for sale when the landlord or their agent offers the property for sale (not, for example, when a brokerage agreement is signed);
  3. Give notice to each tenant home owner, any homeowners association, the municipality or county where the park is located, and the Colorado Division of Housing (Division) within 14 days after the landlord intends to make a final, unconditional acceptance of an offer for the sale or transfer of the park;
  4. Give tenant home owners a 90-day opportunity to to make an offer to purchase a park after each notice;
  5. Negotiate in good faith with any group or association of home owners or their assignees who submits an offer to buy the park; and
  6. If a group or association of home owners are not the successful purchaser of the park, submit the Affidavit of Compliance (linked below) to the Division and the municipality or county where the park is located, to demonstrate the landlord’s compliance with the requirements in section 38-12-217.

A landlord is not required to provide advance notice of their intent to sell a park or extend an opportunity to purchase to a group or association of home owners if the sale, transfer, or conveyance of the mobile home park is to certain related family members or business entities described in section 38-12-217(12), C.R.S. Landlord’s who are selling or transferring their park under an exemption to section 38-12-217, C.R.S., are required to update the park’s ownership and contact information for registration with the Division within 30 calendar days of the sale pursuant to 8 CCR 1302-15, Rule 2.6
