AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 25 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS IN MANUFACTURED HOME COMMUNITIES.
This Act clarifies when a manufactured home community owner can recover the cost of a capital improvement from the homeowners in the community and makes the amount the community owner collects a capital improvement assessment fee that ends when the cost of the capital improvement is recovered, instead of a permanent rent increase. A homeowner or homeowner association may dispute a capital improvement assessment fee under the existing rent increase dispute resolution process. This Act also repeals the definition of “market rent” because that term is not a factor considered for justifying a rent increase under current law. This Act also clarifies when a capital improvement assessment fee or rent increase takes effect. This Act also makes technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
