The Penticton & District Manufactured Home
Owners Association (P&DMHOA) was incorporated on July 19, 1985 under the
Societies Act. On July 19, 2017 we turned 32 years old. That's over
a quarter of a century old. In that short time we have done much for the
owner/tenant, who is a member of our Association, in the parks in the district
and it is our intention, with the help of every member, to do much more.
We are a District Association and are affiliated
with the Active Manufactured Home Owners Association (AMHOA) which is also
incorporated provincially and is our provincial voice at all levels of BC
As stated by AMHOA, "Owners of manufactured homes situated on rented lots
in manufactured home parks are home owners, renters and taxpayers. They
therefore face a unique situation with problems common to all three roles".
We are much more vulnerable to intimidation and
abuse from land owners than other renters because of our position as
owner/renter and because of the investment we have in our homes. This
Associations's objective is to eliminate or substantially reduce the problems we
face so that we have the same enjoyment as other home owners, the enjoyment of
our homes, security of tenure and home equity protection. We have the
right to look to local governments for assistance with some of our problems
because we are property taxpayers.
Purposes & Objectives:
Coordinate with and suport the efforts of the Active Manufactured Home Owners
Association (AMHOA) in order to be current as to the rights and protections
that are in place.
Cooperate with other agencies involved in this lifestyle choice.
Work with park managers or owners to make manufactured home parks a better place to live.
Assist members, where possible, in problem solving and in the dispute
settlement process. Legal advice must be obtained from a lawyer; we can
only give information based on past experience.
Provide members and prospective members with a semi-annual Newsletter to keep
them informed of changes that affect manufactured home parks and home owners.
Promote and assist in the establishment of local Park Associations to work
with each other and/or the park landlord to improve living conditions in and
around the park. A Park Association should foster a good community
spirit and will not function well if used primarily to wage war on other
residents or the park manager/owner.
Seek ways to educate and impress on all Realtor firms the importance of full
disclosure regarding the ASSIGNMENT of tenancy agreements. Not only is
it in the best interest of their clients, be they the seller or the purchaser,
but non-disclosure does reflect back on the Realtor's integrity. Also,
an assignment of a tenancy agreement is a great point and can go a long way to
ensure a sale.
TOGETHER WE HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE.
WITH YOUR HELP, WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.
