Rent Control Set to Expire Dec. 31

A Superior Court judge’s ruling that rent controls established in 1984 for the Tricia Meadows land lease community of Mount Laurel, New Jersey will expire Dec. 31 has led to a lawsuit opposing the action. The mostly senior low and moderate-income residents believed their $224.50 monthly rent would continue because it was supported by the state supreme court’s affordable housing ruling, according to Forty-six residents of the 400 manufactured homes in the community filed a class-action suit in Superior Court in Burlington County alleging expiration was not included in their leases, and a rent increase would violate consumer-protection laws. MHProNews has learned the landlord, Davis Enterprise, notified them in March their new rent would rise to the market rate of $447 a month.
