Delaware General Assembly Passes Rent Justification for Land Lease Communities

June 21st, 2013

Following a story MHProNews last covered June 11, 2013 regarding the rent justification bill in the Delaware General Assembly, lawmakers passed SB 33 but removed the requirement that increases be greater than the average annual increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the last three years. The Delaware State Housing Authority will still consider the request for a raise in rents if the landlord states it will be used to improve the community. If the residents and owner cannot agree on an increase, the matter will go to non-binding arbitration. Another amendment to the Senate version, as delawarenewszap says, is the arbitrator must submit a written decision within 15 days of the arbitration.
