The Michigan Senate is set to vote on bills amending the Mobile Home Commission Act. The proposed legislation aims to increase regulations by having the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) revise the Mobile Home Code, establish license requirements, and raise fees for mobile home community owners, while prohibiting unlicensed owners from collecting rent. The bills would also have the Manufactured Housing Commission review owners’ proposed rent increases and decide whether they’re justifiable or not based on inflation. Mobile home communities serve as a vital source of affordable housing for Michiganders. These bills aim to safeguard residents from substantial rent hikes and ensure that their communities are maintained to livable standards. Holly Hook, a resident of a mobile home community in Michigan, addressed the Senate last week, shared her firsthand experiences, and expressed her support for the bills. #affordablehousing #housing #mobilehomes #rentincrease
