Delaware lawmakers are considering increasing the amount owners of manufactured homes (MH) will receive if they are forced to relocate. Tapping into a fund established from a monthly assessment on sites in manufactured housing communities (MHCs), the Delaware Manufactured Home Relocation Authority (DMHRA) proposes to double the maximum relocation expense for a single-section manufactured home from $4,000 to $8,000. The maximum payment for residents of multi-section homes would rise from $8,000 to $12,000, according to what washingtonpost.com tells MHProNews. For MH considered non-relocatable, payments would be $5,000 for a single-section and $9,000 for a multi-section. The maximum community owners could receive for disposal of a non-relocatable home would rise from $500 to $3,000 for a single-section, and $1,000 to $5,000 for a multi-section.
