  • In response to tenants’ complaints, the Delaware Attorney General’s office has issued an order requiring the owner of a Seaford manufactured home community to make several improvements.
    The Cease and Desist Order was issued May 31 pursuant to an agreement reached with PFL Limited Partnership, the owner and operator of Layton’s Riviera. An investigation conducted by the AG’s Consumer Protection Unit resulted in the discovery of multiple violations of Delaware’s Manufactured Home Owners and Community Owners Act, leading the unit to allege that PFL failed to adequately protect the health and safety of residents and their guests and failed to maintain the roads in the community in a good condition.
    The unit reached an agreement with PFL, requiring the company to remove the debris of an abandoned manufactured home that was destroyed in a fire, to maintain the community in a manner to protect the health and safety of its residents, and to place and maintain the roads in the community in a good condition. PFL was also ordered to pay $3,500 in investigative costs and attorney’s fees and $10,000 in civil penalties to the state. The penalties were suspended provided PFL abides by the terms of the agreement; future violations of the agreement will subject PFL to civil penalties of up to $25,000 per violation.
