Pre-HUD Code Mobile Homes Fingered for Construction and Energy Issues

charolle-white-pre-hud-code-mobile-home-credit-earthfix-oregon-public-broadcasting-posted-daily-business-news-manufactured-housing-professional-news-mhpronews-Mold, uneven floors and energy wasting are among the complaints that Charlotte White, an owner of a pre-HUD Code mobile home expressed, says earthfix. The 64 year old White is retired and lives in a single wide located in Rainbow Rock Village in Curry County, Oregon. Their story underscores the dramatic improvement in quality, safety and energy efficiency in manufactured housing since the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) manufactured home safety standards went into effect, which took place on June 15, 1976, and accelerated with the updates to the so-called HUD Code in 1994. Nevertheless, millions of pre-HUD Code mobile home owners may struggle with issues like those which have impacted White, including utility bills that may be half or more of her monthly social security check of under $400 monthly. MHProNews notes that the earthfix report failed to identify if the pre-HUD Code mobile home has been properly maintained, which industry pros know can lead to some of the complaints expressed in the story. These are clarifying points to a story run previously, at this link. ##
