People who purchased a mobilehome or manufactured home but didn’t receive the necessary title to the property now have a chance to properly register their homes with the new Fee and Tax Waiver Program – and avoid paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars in state and local taxes, fees and penalties.
The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is administering the program to get the homes properly registered – and to help homeowners avoid problems that can occur when the owner doesn’t have the title and registration. As many as 160,000 people could be eligible for the program.
The Fee and Tax Waiver Program, passed by Assembly Bill 587 and signed by Gov. Edmund G. Brown last year, took effect in January 2017.
Private landlords who have blanket bans on renting to people with criminal records are in violation of the Fair Housing Act and can be sued and face penalties for discrimination, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development said today as they released new guidance on the issue.
