Manufactured Housing Law Update
Manufactured Housing Law Update – September 2016
September was a month filled with water system and plumbing legislation, so if you are interested in all things H20, this month’s report will keep you mentally hydrated.
If water is not your thing—maybe you prefer sports drinks or something a little stronger—we have information for you too. For example, a manufactured home retailer that did not install or have anything to do with the installation of a consumer’s stairs was not liable as a result of injuries incurred when the consumer fell from those stairs. That just seems like a reasonable outcome.
There were two cases decided under New York’s statutes requiring a satisfaction piece be recorded and whether a consumer had standing to sue post-Spokeo when a satisfaction piece is not timely recorded. Not surprisingly, one court said “yes” and one court said “no.”
We also summarize several fair housing developments, including HUD’s guidance on dealing with LEP consumers and HUD’s final Fair Housing rules addressing quid pro quo and hostile environment harassment under the Fair Housing Act.
That’s not all. Keep reading to quench your thirst.
