    MHISC Tackling
    Septic Tank Delay Issue

    Members say it is taking too long to get septic tank permits in many parts of the state. They say the delay is so long, loans are expiring. MHISC is on the case. The association has met with the Division Director at DHEC and urged improvements in the current inspection system and a second meeting is scheduled.

    Get Ready for MHISC's Fall Meeting

    MHISC’s statewide meetings never disappoint, so you’ll want to make sure you are at the upcoming Fall Meeting in Charleston on November 7-8

    MHISC is at a new location this year The Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina!

    MHISC packs so much into its day-and-a-half meetings. The November meeting will include informative speakers, committee meetings, reception and dinner, best in the industry awards, golf tournament,  news-to-use and much more!

    Wednesday afternoon we will kick off the meeting with MHISC’s five key committees meeting to tackle pressing industry issues: The Dealer Roundtable, Modular Steering Committee, Membership Committee, Image and Professionalism Committee and Community Manager’s Committee. If you are interested in serving on a committee contact Mark at awestmoreland@mhisc.com.

     MHISC will also offer various seminars that will interest all membership categories.

     Thursday afternoon members will enjoy 18 holes of golf at our MHISC PAC Golf Tournament. MHISC’s tournament will be held at Patriots Point. This golf tournament raises funds for the association’s political action committee.  Without the PAC the industry would not have a legislative voice.

    You Did It!

    Our Washington Legislation Has Passed

    The President has signed the industry’s legislation to fix a problem with the federal Dodd-Frank Act into law.

    Our members delivered SC’s Washington delegation in a big way for yesterday’s big vote. Representatives Duncan, Gowdy, Norman, Rice, Sanford, and Wilson, voted in favor of our industry’s legislation to fix Dodd-Frank.

    This was NOT a slam-dunk vote. We needed these six SC congressmen to vote our way.

    Thank you to every MHISC member who called or emailed their representative Tuesday and all the earlier Senate and House votes that led to the passage of our bill.

    How the Bill Will Help
    The bill, S. 2155 removes the goofy Dodd-Frank provision that said an MH seller must be a licensed “loan originator” simply because they help the buyer with the loan process.  Removing the rule means loans can now move faster and more smoothly. Plus the retailer can help keep the loan – and the sale – on track.

    The Sales Tax on Manufactured Homes
    Has Not Gone Up!

    State officials have been telling member companies and the public that the base tax on manufactured homes has increased to $500.

    For example, the SCDMV recently told lenders the agency would not issue titles unless the "new" tax amount was collected.

    The confusion came from a misreading of legislation passed in Columbia which did raise the sales tax on automobiles, but not manufactured homes.  

    After MHISC discussed the error with the DMV’s attorney, the agency corrected taxpayer instructions on its website, returning the stated base amount to $300.

    Our association is contacting officials whenever this misunderstanding comes up. 

    Current MHISC members who encounter problems are encouraged to contact the association for help in educating officials on the issue.

    Manufactured Housing Champion


    South Carolina’s manufactured housing industry is lucky to have strong support from our representatives in the United States Senate.
     
    Our state’s senior senator, Lindsey Graham, is also a tireless advocate for keeping manufactured housing accessible and affordable for our working families.
     
    As a boy, Senator Graham’s family lived in a manufactured home in Central, South Carolina.
     
    He fondly recalls the pride they felt when the modest success enjoyed by their family-owned restaurant made it possible for his father to purchase the home.
     
    That experience fuels his passion for our industry.
     
    In March, Senator Graham voted in favor of legislation clarifying a manufactured housing retailer or seller is not considered a mortgage "loan originator" simply because they provide a customer with some assistance in the mortgage loan process.
     
    This provision was included in the "Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act," a package of reforms intended to improve the regulatory framework that governs lending and promotes economic growth.
     
    We salute Senator Graham for his continued support for affordable housing for all Americans.

    Three Reasons that Energy Star Home Sales Are Expected to Rise in SC

    The $1000 per home tax credit for manufacturers that build ENERGY STAR homes was extended retroactively through 2017.  Congress is expected to do the same for 2018.
    MHISC’s legislation to extend the sales tax incentive for Energy Star homes for five more years in SC has passed the Senate and now goes to the House.  The sales tax on the home is zero for Energy Star homes in SC. 
    The industry’s energy research institution says they will announce changes in the next few weeks to make it easier to qualify a home as Energy Star.
