Ohio ranks among the top ten states for the total number of existing mobile homes. In addition, the sale of new and used mobile homes in Ohio has grown into a multi-million dollar business. Ohio has been slow, however, to respond to the needs of housing consumers who choose to live in mobile homes. Not until late 1977 was there a landlord-tenant law for mobile home residents. This article will review the development of the Ohio mobile home landlord-tenant law and the rights and obligations of mobile homeowners and park operators under this law.
