Andy Carey - How to Value Your Sleep


What is the price of sleeping well?  When considering what a good property management company provides to a park owner, there may be no more important question than that. 


No, I am not referring to the price of the newest, luxury Tempur-pedic mattress and high-loft shredded memory foam pillows.  Although, for the record those may be worth due consideration as well.


Phil Querin Q&A: Repairs Upon Resale


Question:  Can management require of a resident selling their home in the community that the space be removed of all attachments and outbuildings that were added upon initial occupancy? E.g. the removal of all decking, sun rooms etc.?  What kind of notice does the landlord give while the home is up for sale with potential buyers are considering the home with these amenities?  Can the landlord restrict colors for the home and even restrict the size and type of fencing?  How does this all fit into the new law on disrepair and deterioration passed by the legislature in 2017 (SB277)?



MHCO Article: Developing A Positive Relationship With Your Community Residents

In the diverse and varied lifestyles we are seeing in our manufactured housing communities today, resident relations can be a key element in helping to run a successful community.  Whether you own or manage an all-age community or a community for older persons (age 55 or over), the importance of good resident relations cannot be overestimated.



Phil Querin Q&A: Violations Continue Under 30-Day Notice


Question:        A landlord served a resident a 30 day notice (MHCO Form 43) for driving their motorcycle through the park and creating a lot of noise that disturbed the other residents.  The landlord served the resident (who was driving the motorcycle) with a 30 notice for violation of the rules.  Now that same resident is driving even louder through the park to spite the landlord.  What can the landlord do?  Can he evict sooner, since the same violation has occurred before the 30 notice expired?  How do you handle a violation within this 30 day period?  I understand that after 30 days you can give a 20 day notice (MHCO Form 44) that is non curable if substantially the same violation occurs again within 6 months.
