9 years ago: Landless homeowners

April 3, 2004, on this blog: Landless homeowners

People who live in manufactured homes are in a vulnerable situation. They own their home, but not the land it sits on, for which they must pay rent. Just like apartment dwellers, they have leases and those leases can include rent increases when they are up for renewal. But here apartment dwellers are at an advantage — we are far more mobile, more able to move elsewhere if confronted with an unreasonable increase in rent.
