Manufactured home owners in Australia will have the opportunity to share their views regarding legislation that covers their residences on the Queensland Government’s ‘Get Involved’ website. Public Works Minister Tim Mander says the survey is part of a review of the Manufactured Homes Act 2003 to ensure it maintains a fair balance between residents and community owners, according to mysunshinecoast.com.au. “We are keen to engage with manufactured homes owners and seek their views on how the Act can be improved,” Mr Mander reports. “The Act hasn’t been reviewed since 2006, so it is time to take another look and bring it up to speed with this evolving industry.” Topics include sales, operations, utility charges, rent increases and dispute resolution. The department will also seek input from community owners and industry representatives. MHProNews has learned the survey will close Dec. 20, 2013.
