Mobile Home Parks
The PUCN’s jurisdiction over Mobile Home Parks (“MHPs”) is generally limited to the five areas of the resale of utility services:
- ANNUAL REPORTS: In 2015, Assembly Bill 74 was passed into law. This law changed the requirements for certain manufactured home parks or mobile home parks to file an annual report with the PUCN. Beginning with annual reports for calendar year 2015 (which are filed in 2016), the only parks that are required to file an annual report are those that 1) maintain a tenant service charge account and/or 2) are billed by a utility and in turn charge tenants for utility service. Click on the link below to find out whether your park is required to file an annual report. If your park appears on the list, it is required to file an annual report. If your park does not appear on the list, your park is not required to file an annual report.
Jurisdictional Mobile Home Parks List
Pursuant to NAC 704.987(2), mobile home parks that are required to file an annual report must submit them to the PUCN no later than March 30 of the year following the year for which the report is submitted (I.e., a park’s annual report for 2015 is due no later than March 30, 2016).
- SAFETY: The PUCN may investigate all gas, electric, water and wastewater systems operated by an MHP and address safety concerns in such systems.
- RELIABLE UTILITY SERVICE: MHPs that resell utility services must appropriately operate and maintain utility facilities. The PUCN may investigate the operation and maintenance of such utility facilities to ensure safe, reliable utility services are provided by an MHP to its tenants.
- UTILITY RATES: If an MHP charges its tenants for gas, electric or water utility service, then the charges to the tenants must comply with Nevada statutes, including but not limited to NRS 704.940. The PUCN may investigate all MHP charges to its tenants for utility services.
- COMPLAINTS: Any tenant of an MHP who has concerns regarding the safety and reliability of utility services provided by the MHP and/or the charges collected by the MHP for utility services, may complain to the PUCN’s Consumer Complaint Resolution Division (“Division”). The Division will investigate the complaint.
