Residents Seek State Protection from Landlord

According to lehighvalleylive residents of Greenbriar Valley manufactured housing community (MHC) in east-central Penn. allege owner Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. (ELS) is unjustly raising their rents and they are seeking protection, as they approach April 18 when rents for the 319 site community will rise again. One residents says his site rent has increased from $374 to $539 a month in ten years. At a Greenbriar homeowners association meeting State Rep. Robert Freeman says he sponsored legislation last year that gives manufactured home owners more rights if their community is sold, and will work with residents to seek more protection. He favors rents being tied to the consumer price index and intends to meet with the attorney general regarding protection for homeowners under the state’s Consumer Protection Act. As MHProNews knows, ELS is the largest owner of MHCs in North America with some 380 communities comprised of over 141,000 homesites.
