Mobile Homes: Common Source of Legal Disputes

Though they are still striving for social tolerance, mobile homes have managed to achieve a certain legal acceptance.

"While mobile homes and the people who live in them often struggle for acceptability, manufactured housing remains a fertile source of work for lawyers in Virginia.

Though it may still be striving for social acceptance, mobile homes have achieved a certain legal acceptance, according to John F. Rick, attorney for the Virginia Manufactured and Modular Housing Association. Rick said disputes with localities over state zoning laws passed in the 1990s are largely resolved.

Nevertheless, at least one Virginia community has become a hot spot for legal conflict over a new type of modular home. In Wytheville, two lawsuits are pending over regulation of what are called 'on-frame' modular homes."
