On August 31, 2010, the Second District of the California Court of Appeals (the “Appellate Court” or “Court”) issued two separate rulings in the above described matters (“Colony Cove” and “Palisades Bowl”) addressing the conversion of a rental mobile home park to resident ownership under the Subdivision Map Act (Gov. Code §66410 et seq.). The two decisions clarified to the role of a local legislative body or advisory agency (“Local Agency”) with respect to its approval, conditional approval, or disapproval of a tentative map or parcel map for the conversion of a rental mobile home park to resident ownership under Government Code §66427.5. They also highlighted some potential issues that Local Agencies may face in implementing the statute as currently written.
