DelawareNewszap reports state Sen. Bruce Ennis has sponsored a rent justification bill, SB 33, for manufactured home communities that will mandate MHC owners seek approval from the Delaware Manufactured Home Relocation Authority if they try to raise rents beyond the Consumer Price Index (CPI) annual increase. The authority will allow the increase only if the landlord can prove it will benefit the community directly. In last year’s General Assembly a similar bill passed the Senate but not the House. As MHProNews reported April 12, 2013 a state initiative was set to begin April 15 to assist manufactured home owners with site rent and house payments up to $5,000.
