Mobile home park operator to fix nine homes

The current operator of a mobile home park in Lockport has agreed to fix the shoddy installation work of a contractor hired by the previous operator.

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says MHC The Woodlands will repair nine homes at an estimated cost of $20,000 per home.

The mobile homes were installed in 2008 and 2009 by a contractor hired by the previous park operator. The homes have experienced cracked interior walls and ceilings, as well as other problems.

MHC conducted its own investigation into the issues at the mobile home park and found the contractor did not correctly join the two halves of the homes and that some of the concrete piers being used as their foundations were crumbling.

The repair plan agreed to by MHC exceeds the manufacturer’s installation requirements.
