Protecting Homes & Preserving Communities Statewide
MHOA NJ was founded and exists for the purpose of insuring the rights of manufactured home owners by dispelling through education the misconceptions and myths held by the public, media, and government officials concerning manufactured housing its owners and/or residents.
Our Goals Are To:
(as adopted by MHOAA)
WHEREAS More than 6 million individuals and families own their homes but not the land under them,
WHEREAS these individuals and families rent the land from the manufactured housing community owner, and
WHEREAS these community owners have the power to impose rules and regulations that impact the constitutional rights of manufactured homeowners and their families.
NOW THEREFORE let it be resolved that
Manufactured homeowners and their families are entitled to enjoy the same constitutional freedoms as all other Americans, especially:
1. Freedom of speech ( including, but not limited to, the right to distribute informational/educational fliers about the rights of manufactured homeowners);
2. Freedom of assembly (including, but not limited to, the right to organize a homeowners’ association, the right to peaceably assemble, and the right to hold association meetings at the community’s clubhouse to discuss issues of importance to manufactured homeowners, and the right to exclude from the meetings community owners, managers and other agents of the owner);
3. Freedom from retaliation (including, but not limited to, the right to be assured that there is a rebuttal presumption of retaliation if the community owner attempts to raise the rent of selected homeowners or evict selected homeowners within 6 months of them forming/joining a home owners’ association at the local, state or national level; and
4. The right to equal protection under the law (including, but not limited to, the right to the peaceful enjoyment of one’s home and the uniform and consistent enforcement of rules and regulations).
