jd585, I agree with DeanS.
As the MHP Owner you are like a Subdivision’s HOA (Home Owner’s Association) who develops and enforces rules for the neighborhoood / community.
In fact our own Subdivision HOA is going after a Resident who selected to build an above ground pool with a deck around it with no fence nor prior approval. Our Subdivision HOA is now applying fines to this Resident and will probably take them to court or put a lien on their house for all the fines.
Our MHP Rules do NOT allow:
- Swimming Pools: Liability of drowning
- Fire Pits: Liability of fires
- Trampolines: Liability of injuries
We have had several MHP Tenants buy and put up swimming pools (even though it is against our MHP Rules).
We immediately inform the MHP Tenants that they are violating the rules and that they will need to remove the swimming pool immediately.
One of the adult children of our MHP Tenant actually purchased and put up a fairly large pool (without any permission). The adult child was very upset that they had to remove the pool. If the actual MHP Tenant selected to not remove the pool, they would have just been given a 30 day notice of non-renewal of their month-to-month lease. However, the actual MHP Tenant (the Dad) was very apologetic and had the pool removed immediately.
Ultimately, it is your land and your rules. You need to create rules to protect both yourself and others.
Now you cannot create unreasonable rules or discriminatory rules.
However, reasonable rules that are evenly enforced are not a problem.
We wish you the very best!
