Tennessee Housing Association
Hosts Meeting for
Tennessee Home Manufacturers
and Commerce & Insurance

 

January 9, 2017… Representatives from all ten Tennessee manufactured home manufacturers, along with officials from the Department of Commerce & Insurance, Manufactured Housing Division, met to discuss ways to improve inspection and documentation processes.  Several agenda items were clarified, and the general consensus among participants, was to hold a similar meeting annually.

We appreciate the time and attention given from both industry and regulatory officials, in this very important meeting.


 

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….

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!

 


All members of the manufactured housing industry should fully understand the issues we are fighting, on your behalf!

As we continue to push for regulatory change of federal laws, the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) has prepared and distributed aMyth vs. Factsheet, relative to what the ‘Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act of 2017’ legislation actually hopes to accomplish.

The bills HB1699/S1751, were introduced to amend the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) to specify a retailer of manufactured housing is generally not a “mortgage originator”, subject to requirements under that Act.  Similarly, the bill amends the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008, to specify such a retailer is generally not a “loan originator”, subject to requirements under that Act.

In addition, the respective bills increases the annual percentage rates and transaction values at which mortgages for certain dwellings are considered “high-cost mortgages” under TILA.

As well, H.R.10 carries similar language, and is yet another ‘vehicle’ the industry is using to accomplish the mission of having our language passed in to law.
