MANUFACTURED HOME OWNERS ASSOCIATION (DMHOA)
Living A Brighter Future
DMHOA had it's beginnings as a county association 26 years ago, and has experienced tremendous growth in the last few years. This growth came about because of the the greater awareness of manufactured home owners as well as the issues and problems related to manufactured homes on leased land. In 2003 DMHOA was the moving force behind a complete revision of state law that gave home owners the first real protection for their investment (home) in the history of Delaware.
It was chartered as a statewide grass-roots advocacy group in March 2002 as a natural outgrowth of the Sussex County Manufactured Home Tenants Association, which had represented owners of Manufactured Homes in the States' fastest-growing county since 1983.
We want YOU to know, in whatever community you happen to live in, that you have rights under the law.
We want to have a meeting with as many interested people in your community; to inform you of your rights.
Delaware Manufactured Home Owners Association is the only statewide advocacy organization in the Diamond State representing the interests of owners of manufactured homes on leased land, throughout New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties.
