Higher Payments Eyed for Mobile Home Relocations

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A panel established by Delaware lawmakers is proposing to increase the amount of money mobile home owners could receive if forced to relocate.
 
The Delaware Manufactured Home Relocation Authority wants to double the maximum relocation payment for a tenant of a single-section home from $4,000 to $8,000 and bump the maximum payment for tenants of multi-section homes from $8,000 to $12,000.
 
The authority also is proposing new payments of $5,000 for single-section homes and $9,000 for multi-section homes considered non-relocatable.
 
Maximum payments to park owners for the demolition or disposal of non-relocatable homes would increase from $500 to $3,000 for a single-section home and from $1,000 to $5,000 for a multi-section home.
 
The relocation money comes from a fund that was established using monthly assessments on mobile home park lots.
