§ 24.502(c) permits using combined payment computations:
Housing supplement for mobile home.
Rental supplement for site.
To purchase conventional dwelling.
Limited to $22,500 unless last resort applies.
The revised provision adds clarity to the ability to apply the potential split payments calculated where an owner of a mobile home rents the site.
As in all situations where housing supplements are insufficient, housing of last resort could exceed the limitation. The rental supplement would just be added to the last resort housing supplement to determine the total that would have to be applied to the purchase of a conventional dwelling.
The calculated cost differential for the mobile home would be added to the rental supplement calculated for the site. This gross amount could be used to replicate the procurement replacement housing based on assumptions in calculation, or it could be applied to the purchase of a mobile home and site or to the purchase of conventional housing.
It is possible for an agency to acquire a site but not the mobile home on that site. This often happens if the dwelling unit is called personal property and not purchased by the agency. In these instances, the owner-occupant of the mobile home unit is not displaced from the dwelling unit. However, this person is a displaced person and could be paid for moving cost and a replacement housing payment for the rent or purchase of a replacement site.
