109 Iowa L. Rev. 837 (2024)



Mobile home owner-tenants own their homes but rent the land where their homes sit. Mobile homes are not as mobile as their name suggests, and owner-tenants face a significant risk of eviction. Eviction for mobile home owner-tenants carries an added risk that traditional renters do not face—the loss of investment in their homes. This Note argues that Iowa should expand its Mobile Home Parks Residential Landlord and Tenant Act to require a one-year minimum lease term. A minimum lease term would protect owner-tenants from losing their homes, while also balancing mobile home park owners’ interests in keeping the parks profitable.
