DOVER, Del. (AP) - The Delaware Court of Chancery has ruled that approximately 220 homeowners in a manufactured homes community in Dover have the right to contest a 2015 rent increase.

Delaware State News (https://bit.ly/22uGEDk ) reports that Vice Chancellor Sam Glasscock III says the Wild Meadows Home Owners Association is covered under the Rent Justification Act and can continue with a currently stayed Superior Court case over a proposed $45.74 monthly rent increase.

Arbitrator Ciro Poppiti III says the proposed increase, which would raise the cost of rent to $485.39, is unjustified.

Wild Meadows Homeowners Association President Fred Neil says December Corp. is looking to fund $102,000 in community repairs.

Attempts to reach December Corp. for comment were unsuccessful.



The 55-plus age neighborhood sits just east of U.S. 13 near Dover International Speedway.
