Manufactured Housing Action Legislation

Summary – Protecting Manufactured Home Residents – HB 4298-4304 (click to view)

 

All families should have an affordable home in a healthy, vibrant community. Over 1,900 manufactured home communities in Michigan provide critical affordable housing, but our communities are under threat and families are being priced out and pushed out by predatory investors.

Across the country, including in Michigan, a group of bad actors have built a highly profitable business model by exploiting the vulnerability of manufactured/mobile home residents who own our
homes, but rent the land underneath. Their business model relies on dramatically increasing lot rents (i.e., the rent residents pay for the land beneath their homes) and fees, minimizing maintenance, and
harassing residents with punitive rules and eviction threats. This trend is threatening a crit ical source of affordable housing particularly in Michigan’s rural and exurban areas.
