Dove v. Childs (Ct. of Special Appeals)

Filed April 4, 2007--Opinion by Judge James R. Eyler.

This matter required interpretation of the Maryland Mobile Home Parks Act of 1980, Maryland Code (2003 Repl. Vol.), §§ 8A-101 to 8A-1803 of the Real Property Article, and Howard County ordinances regulating mobile home developments, specifically, § 16.516 of the Howard County Code.

The owners of a mobile home park, after giving notice to the tenants of their intention to close the park as of a certain date, sought and obtained a judgment of restitution of possession, requiring the tenants to vacate the park. The tenants appealed from that decision and contended the court erred because the owners were not in compliance with the above laws.

This Court perceived no error and affirmed the judgment.
