Community-owned mobile parks keep eviction at bay. Can they work in North Carolina?

Some states and cities protect residents of mobile-home communities from eviction with opportunity-to-purchase laws, which require the corporations that rent the land beneath a mobile home to give residents a chance to buy a community when it's for sale. But most places in the U.S. lack such laws, and often zoning rules favor corporate owners. So organizations like ROC USA provide the financial leverage to help residents band together to own their communities, which are also called manufactured housing. ROC has helped 280 communities in 18 states make such purchases.
