Mobile Home Parks Program
The Department enforces Vermont's mobile home laws which are designed to protect the safety and rights of owners and residents. It has adopted rules concerning mobile home park leases, rent increases, the sale or closure of mobile home parks, and mobile home park habitability, and conducts an annual registration of parks. The department serves as a resource on mobile home and park issues.
