“We are having issues holding meetings in the park’s clubhouse. Park management seems to close the clubhouse whenever they feel like it. Are there any laws in place to keep the clubhouse open at reasonable hours?”

-Pablo H. (46), resident, Santa Fe, NM.


State laws can vary, so it is important to consult the specific laws and regulations of your state.

In California, for instance, Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL) requires that common facilities to be open and available during hours stipulated by the park. Homeowners may hold meetings at reasonable hours and in a reasonable manner in the clubhouse—when it is not otherwise in use—for any lawful purpose, such as HOA meetings.

Mobile home parks are typically governed by state laws that cover various aspects of their operation, including tenant rights and park management. These laws may outline certain obligations and responsibilities of park owners or operators, but in some states, they may or may not address the clubhouse’s operating hours. More often, specific rules and regulations related to clubhouse access and availability will be outlined in your lease or rental agreement.

If you are experiencing issues with clubhouse access or unreasonable operating hours, you should first review your lease or rental agreement to clarify the specific terms and conditions outlined by the park. If the issue persists, you may need to consult with a local attorney or contact a relevant tenant advocacy organization for guidance on your rights and possible remedies available under your state’s laws.


  • Laws designating reasonable park clubhouse hours may vary between states.
  • Clubhouse availability hours should be outlined in the terms of your lease agreement.
