Senate Modifies Rent Control Bill

According to capegazette.village soup, the Delaware Senate modified the rent justification measure that will limit manufactured housing community owners ability to raise rent, a story MHProNews has been following since March 8, 2013. As originally passed, SB 33 says landlords could increase rents based on a formula tied to the consumer price index (CPI). Anything higher owners would have to justify as contributing to the well being of the community, and be approved by the Delaware Manufactured Home Relocation Authority (DMHRA). The new version states residents and the DMHRA are to be notified of an increase. If the increase exceeds the CPI formula, the authority begins mediation between the owner and the residents. If that fails, the matter goes to non-binding arbitration.
