Only a tenant or a park owner or operator has standing with the Board of Manufactured Housing. Tenant associations have no legal standing with the Board of Manufactured Housing; however, the board may accept testimony from their representatives. In other words, only a tenant or a park owner or operator may initiate a complaint. Any tenant or park owner or operator wanting to place a complaint before the board must do so as an individual even if a group of tenants are plagued by the same grievance. The board may choose to join several complaints during a hearing proceeding, but even though these complaints may have been joined, the resolution of these complaints are deliberated and decided on an individual basis.
The tenant or park owner or operator can represent him or herself before the Board or may be represented by an attorney or any other authorized representative.
