Registration with the Mobile Home Park Oversight Program (Program) is required if:

  • The property is located in Colorado;
  • There are five (5) or more occupied mobile or manufactured homes on your property, including the below:
    • If all the homes are owned by the landlord but there are 5+ occupied mobile homes, registration is still required. However, a registration fee may not be due.
    • Mobiles homes on separate parcels in the same neighborhood as determined by the Division.
    • If there will be 5+ occupied mobile homes on the property, then registration within 90 days of units becoming available for rent is required.

Review the "Mobile Homes" under Colorado Law fact sheet for more information on what is considered a "mobile home". Please note that the fact sheet is intended for information purposes only.

A mobile home is occupied if a landlord has a rental agreement OR is receiving rent payments for the home or lot. "Occupied" is not based on whether someone is physically in the home at a particular time. See 8 CCR 1302-15 Rule 1.7 (English / Español).

Properties owned by charitable organizations are required to register if the property has all of the characteristics of a “mobile home park” described in state statute:

  • A parcel of land;
  • Used for continuous accommodation;
  • Of five or more occupied mobile homes; and
  • Operated for the pecuniary benefit of the owner of the land, or the owner's agents, lessees, or assignees.

See C.R.S. § 38-12-201.5(6) (English / Español) and 8 CCR 1302-15 Rule 1.4 (English / Español).

Generally, mobile home subdivisions or property zoned for manufactured home subdivisions are not considered mobile home parks in state statute except when: 

  • An owner owns a parcel or subdivided parcels or interests in the same neighborhood;
  • The land is used for the continuous accommodation of 5+ occupied mobile homes; and
  • Operated for the pecuniary benefit of the owner of the land, or the owner's agents, lessees, or assignees. 

The land does not need to be contiguous to be a mobile home park if it is in the same neighborhood as determined by the Division.

See C.R.S. § 38-12-201.5(6)-(6.5) (English / Español) and 8 CCR 1302-15 Rule 1.5 (English / Español).
