What is Chaper 723?

Mobile home parks in Florida are governed by a unique set of laws that were created to address the unique relationship between a mobile home park owner and a mobile home owner.  The laws were designed to preserve and protect the rights of both parties.  The laws can be found in the Florida Mobile Home Act, Chapter 723 and the Florida Administrative Code.
