Federation of Manufactured Home Owners of Florida (FMO)

The Federation of Manufactured Home Owners of Florida, Inc., (FMO) is a statewide, consumer advocacy association dedicated to protecting the rights and interests and enriching the lifestyles of manufactured home owners. Formed in 1962, the FMO has a current membership of approximately 20,000 manufactured home owners. FMO operates with more than 1,000 volunteer officers from around the state who serve members by answering questions, assisting with problems, organizing district meetings and workshops, and linking them to the Board of Directors and the administrative staff at the Largo business office.

In 1962, the St. Petersburg City Council planned to enact an ordinance mandating that mobile home owners install tie-downs, a very expensive proposition then. Peggy Johnstone, upset by the impending mandate, contacted fellow mobile home owners and, on March 26th, 77 communities came together to defeat the ordinance. The FMO was founded that day with a clear vision in place: protect the interests of manufactured/mobile home owners in Florida.

Accomplishments

The Federation of Manufactured Home Owners of Florida, Inc. is the only nonprofit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the rights of over 1.2 million manufactured home owners in the state of Florida. While many of our resources target Florida legislators, making them aware of the problems that face homeowners and persuading them to affect positive legislation that will protect our members, we also offer personalized, individual assistance to members who need us.

Legislation

Survey results reveal that 71 percent of FMO members joined FMO because of the clout it gives them in the Florida legislature. Every year, the FMO Board of Directors identifies areas that may make manufactured home owners vulnerable and then formulates a legislative agenda that is aggressively pursued by our legislative counsel, lobbyist, and members.

Research

Board members, officers, staff, and legal counsel work behind the scenes to help you find the information you need to set up a homeowners' association, run an effective meeting, set up acquisition committees or file an official complaint. Members have the collective resources of the FMO at their disposal when they need assistance.

Education

Another popular benefit of joining the FMO is the many workshops held throughout the year. Workshops for those living in rental communities cover topics like negotiating with your park owner, organizing a successful homeowners' association, and purchasing your park. For those in resident owned communities, workshops cover topics like managing your community.

Who We Help

Because there are all types of manufactured home owners—those that own their home and land, those that rent land, those that live in family communities, just to mention a few—the FMO has diversified to assist homeowners in whatever situations they may find themselves.
