Manufactured Housing


The Consumer Protection Unit enforces the Manufactured Home Owners and Community Owners Act (the “Manufactured Housing Act”) (codified at 25 Del. C. §§ 7001 – 7045). The Manufactured Housing Act governs the relationship between lot lease tenants and manufactured home community owners. CPU may file a civil action against a community owner who engages in a pattern or practice of violations. CPU generally does not oversee rent justification disputes; however, CPU may take action in those cases where a landlord has disregarded the process for raising rent. Additionally, CPU conducts outreach events to educate the public about Delaware manufactured housing law. If you have a manufactured housing issue that you would like the Consumer Protection Unit to review, please fill out our Manufactured Housing Consumer Complaint Form (below) and return it via the instructions on the form.
