Del. Rent Control Law to be Explained

Following the receipt of letters by manufactured housing community residents from landlords allegedly trying to lock them into long-term leases with built-in increases, two Del. lawmakers are holding a meeting on the new rent control measure set to become law Jan. 1. Under the new bill, community owners will be required to justify increasing rents above the Consumer Price Index (CPI) average for the past three years. House Majority Leader Valarie Longhurst (D-Bear) and Sen. Nicole Poore (D-New Castle) will hold the meeting Wed. night, July 24 in Bear, in northern Del. As radio station WDDE informs MHProNews, Longhurst, noting how contentious the issue has become in the last few years, says, “It was a consensus bill. The landowners didn’t get everything they wanted, the homeowners didn’t get everything that they wanted.”
