AN ACT to amend the real property law, in relation to providing recourse
  for manufactured  homeowners  in  manufactured  home  parks,  who  are
  confronted with unjustifiable rent increases

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature  finds  and  declares
that:
  (a) Factors unique to home ownership in manufactured home parks in New
York  state  require  that  the  owners  of  such  manufactured homes be
protected from involuntary forfeiture of their homes due to unreasonable
increases in lot rent.
  (b) Homeownership in such manufactured home parks differs  from  other

costs.
  (c) Vacant lots on which to place an existing  manufactured  home  are

disrupts the normal operation of market forces and renders such manufac-
tured homeowners captive to whatever  terms  a  manufactured  home  park
owner  may choose to impose. Although many manufactured home park owners
