MHI announces a partnership with WeatherCall Services, LLC, to provide HazardCall for MHI Communities. (Please go to that link to watch a brief video to learn more.) This important, affordable service saves lives and gives property owners peace of mind.
HazardCall is different from anything else on the market because it calls your residents, as well as sending them texts and emails when dangerous and impactful weather is headed for their specific location. Your residents receive specific instructions on what to do, such as “seek the best shelter immediately.” Most notifications from weather apps go unnoticed, but HazardCall’s urgent phone calls are designed to disrupt the recipient so they will take immediate life-saving action….

Hey! Check out this video MHI has created with highlights from HUD Secretary Carson’s numerous appearances before Congress and this year’s Congress & Expo, extolling the benefits of manufactured housing and how “amazing” it is. We encourage you to share this video with other individuals within your company.
Yesterday, November 6th, Tennessee held its general election for state and federal offices. Following the general election, Tennessee Republicans held on to the super majority in both the State House of Representatives and the Senate. In the Senate, the breakdown remains the same. There are 28 Republicans and 5 Democrats. The House Democrats picked up one additional seat bringing the numbers to 73 Republicans and 26 Democrats.
Above you will find the general recap. Here, you will find a detailed breakdown of the election results by District #.
MHI Publishes Information to Help Manufactured Housing Retailers, Sellers,
and Community Owners Understand The Impact of Recent Changes
to the Dodd-Frank Act on their Businesses
MHI released a high-level summary and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) paper regarding compliance with Section 107 of the “Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act” (Pub. L. 115-174 § 107), which was signed into law by President Trump on May 24, 2018. Entitled “Dodd-Frank Act Changes Provide Relief for Manufactured Housing Retailers and Community Owners,” the paper addresses common questions that members have shared concerning the implementation of this law, which amended the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) by adding an exception to the definition of mortgage originator that excludes manufactured home retailers, sellers, and their employees.
MHI’s paper summarizes the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection’s (Bureau) next steps as the agency prepares to implement the changes to the law. Specifically, it explains what is and is not permitted under the new law and answers questions that have been submitted to MHI since the law was signed. The paper also explains restrictions that might still apply under the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act and other state-specific laws that regulate many of the activities that are now permitted under TILA’s revised definition of mortgage originator.
The change to TILA’s definition of mortgage originator is the result of MHI’s successful advocacy efforts in Washington. MHI’s government affairs team worked closely with Congress and the Administration to secure inclusion and passage of this important provision to the “Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act.” The grassroots outreach from MHI members and state executive directors – totaling more than 20,000 calls and emails – was an instrumental part of this advocacy effort to help members of Congress understand the importance of this provision to their constituents.
