MHProNews has learned from kelownacapnews in British Columbia, Canada, a letter aimed at elected officials from a couple who own a manufactured home is appealing a ruling based on a numbering system that prevents them from registering their homes in the Manufactured Home Registry. Their homes meet all the requirements but is one number different from what the Ministry of Finance allows. Without registration they cannot obtain a mortgage, hire a realtor, access equity in their home, or even declare bankruptcy. They are both on fixed incomes, but without the registration number they are unable to pay mounting medical expenses, and conceivably face homelessness if the situation continues. Kelowna is located in south central British Columbia.
