You must understand your rights in order to benefit from them
We own our homes. How can we be tenants?
If you are one of the 60,000 people in Oregon who own your manufactured or floating home but you rent the land or the slip space that the home is located on, even though you are a homeowner, you are protected under Oregon laws as a tenant.
The Oregon Residential Landlord Tenant Act governs the laws around your contract with your park or marina owner. Under Oregon laws, your park or marina owner is your landlord and you are their tenant.
But Oregon Revised Statue laws in Chapter 90 offer more rights and protections to manufactured and floating home owners in parks and marinas than apartment tenants. These laws are contained in the second half of ORS Chapter 90 and are in addition to the laws which govern apartment tenancies.
