Manufactured Housing Law Update
Manufactured Housing Law Update – October 2017
McGlinchey Stafford and the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) are pleased to bring you the Manufactured Housing Law Update. With content prepared by McGlinchey Stafford’s nationally-recognized consumer financial services team, the Update focuses on legal and regulatory actions in the manufactured housing industry.
Ah, October. The World Series, changing leaves, and, for those of you with young children, the endless celebration that is Halloween. We’re still on a sugar high over here. Will this month’s Update be a trick-or-treat for the manufactured housing industry?
Most states were as silent as the grave in October, with the notable exception of California. California decided to pass legislation concerning immigration, accessory units, solar energy, home sharing, and a waiver program for unpaid taxes related to manufactured housing. California’s governor also issued an Executive Order concerning the California wildfires that directly affects manufactured housing. While some developments in California are undoubtedly positive, this editor sheds a tear at having to review even more manufactured housing statutes in California.
For those not feeling California’s “good vibrations”, this edition has some fun formaldehyde rules from the EPA, some HUD proposed rules, and a CFPB proposed rule. Not to miss is a discussion concerning vanderlism. Yes, we spelled that right.
We hope that this doesn’t scare you away! Happy Reading!
