Hochul signed bills strengthening rights of owners of manufactured homes
Molly Burke reports in the Times Union that Gov. Kathy Hochul signed bills on Oct. 25 strengthening rights of owners of manufactured and modular homes. Hochul said the homes are a "key source of affordable housing" in New York. Hochul said, “This legislative package is our state’s latest tool to support New Yorkers in manufactured home parks — a key source of affordable housing in our state.... I thank the bill sponsors for their partnership in supporting this critical path to affordable homeownership for countless New York families.” One bill strengthens the right of first refusal for owners of manufactured homes. Another bill authorizes mortgages and mortgage pool insurance for modular and manufactured homes. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
