Following up on a post MHProNews last published April 8, 2013 regarding a lawsuit filed against an MHC owner for allegedly violating Penn. law requiring payment relocation expenses to residents of communities that close, realestaterama says Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane has settled with the owners. Kenneth Mayes, II and his sister, Sharon Mayes, who had agreed to sell Hilltop Mobile Home Park in State College, Penn. to a student housing builder, closed the community Feb. 28, 2013, but some residents complained they did not receive payments as required by state law. The agreement calls for the Mayes to pay $26,700 to the Commonwealth, $21,700 to be distributed to residents of Hilltop, and $5,000 for court and attorney’s fees. In addition, $10,000 will be set aside for other residents who file a valid claim within 30 days, with funds to be added if claims exceed $10k.
