Manufactured Housing Law Update
Manufactured Housing Law Update – December 2016
December brought another fantastic year to a close. Bring it on, 2017!
In this issue, we have provided you a couple of “bonus” features: a memo with in‐depth analysis of the recently released FHFA Duty to Serve Final Rule, and a memo concerning Chattel Loan Default Servicing.
Several federal agencies besides FHFA were busy in December, perhaps trying to make their final administrative mark before the change in administrations. For instance, the EPA issued a final rule on formaldehyde and the VA issued a circular regarding titling for manufactured homes.
Unsurprisingly, states were quiet, with the exception of Ohio’s laws regarding flag displays, Michigan’s 15 mph speed limit on highways bordering manufactured home parks, New York’s vacant and abandoned property nightmare of a statute, and Maryland’s contribution to wet venting.
Also of note, a Pennsylvania court found itself in the middle of an episode of Hoarders. Read on, fair reader!
