New legislation could change the rights of mobile home residents in Iowa.

The bill seeks to provide tenants and buyers of manufactured homes similar rights as other renters and homeowners.

The bill could force greater disclosure of information from park owners, and is intended to prevent abuse related to mobile home leases, sales, and fines. Sen. Joe Bolkcom, D-Iowa City, introduced the bill along with eight other Democratic senators Tuesday.
