The Chicago SunTimes, Chicago Tribune, Journal Record and Des Monies Register have all reported in recent months on issues relating to resident complaints in manufactured home communities. A recent example is in Glenview, IL, where the Chicago Tribune reported on Sunset Village MHC, which is now in the hands of a court appointed receiver. Sunset Village has an active residents group that has kept a steady drum beat of complaints against the property owner coming into local media as well as to local and state officials. Iowa’s state association is among those which have declined to support manufactured housing business owners when questionable practices harm the Industry’s image.
