Riverside County is rife with land zoned for MH's. I would contact Todd Armstrong. He specializes in MH's in that area and knows his stuff. tarmstrong68@att.net. good luck.

There are more than a few manufactured homes on their own plot land in San Bernadino and Riverside county. Homes that are not part of sub-divisions. No HOA and no CC&R's. Areas include Perris, Hemet, Romoland and a few others.

Yes... there are a few subdivisions in the greater North Orange County area that are manufactured homes and not in a mobile home park... but they all have CC&R's & HOA's. Sorry!

You really should start with the park manager of the park/communities you are interested in. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rent/lease park/community.

Be wary of any manufactured home built before June 15, 1976 as they are "PRE HUD" homes and will be very difficult if not impossible to finance. Additionally many if not most PRE HUD homes were built using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldehyde and asbestos.

But before you purchase any manufactured home you should have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape.

Be sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped, torn or lying on the ground. Have the inspector look for drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, expansive (clay soil), rusted and deteriorating piers and dry rotted or decomposing wood pads supporting the piers.

Most importantly make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing (ERBS) installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:

Hi there,
I know there is a complex in placentia. I don't remember about the association or not. Otherwise it would be outside of Orange County for something like you want. What county do you want to live in? Let me know and I will talk to you soon. Bye for now
