AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 25 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO A DELAWARE MANUFACTURED HOME OWNER ATTORNEY FUND.
This Act creates a Delaware Manufactured Home Owner Attorney Fund ("Attorney Fund") by collecting a $0.50 monthly assessment per lot from manufactured home owners who rent a lot in a community governed by the Manufactured Home Owners and Community Owners Act. The Attorney Fund will be administered by the Department of Justice to contract with an attorney or agency who will provide legal representation and advocacy for manufactured home owners enforcing existing rights in disputes with community owners. This Act does all of the following: 1. Clarifies that tenants and landlords continue to each pay half of the monthly assessment, currently $5.00, which is deposited in the Delaware Manufactured Home Relocation Trust Fund. 2. Directs $0.50 of each tenant’s portion of the monthly assessment to the Attorney Fund. 3. Reduces the obligation of the landlord by $0.50 for each rented lot. This Act is drafted so that if both this Act and House Bill No. 45 are enacted in 2019, the changes made by this Act will be incorporated into the revisions to Chapter 70 of Title 25 made by House Bill No. 45. Sections 1 and 2 make the same technical corrections as House Bill No. 45 and Sections 1 and 3 make additional technical corrections, to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
