Rent stabilization laws usually protect tenants of apartment complexes, but the same laws are not acknowledged by most owners of mobile-home parks, who argue that renters of apartments cannot be compared to owners of mobile homes. While tenants in rent-stabilized apartment buildings cannot be subjected to frequent increases in rent, owners of mobile homes who rent space in mobile parks are often asked to agree to unreasonable increases in rent in order to renew their leases.
Which of the following would most help to determine whether rent stabilization should be applicable to mobile-home parks?

a)Do attorneys hired by owners of mobile-home parks cite as evidence for their case the fact that the law is usually in the landlords' favor?
b)Have rent stabilization laws changed significantly since they were first implemented?
c)Can tenants living on rent-stabilized properties be evicted if they choose to renew their leases?
d)Do the existing rent stabilization regulations differentiate between laws applicable to owners of apartment complexes and owners of other forms of rental properties?
e)Are tenants in most apartment complexes protected by rent stabilization laws?

Point- we are comparing the differences between tenants of apartment complexes and renters of mobile homes.
So, to determine whether rent stabilization should be applicable to mobile-home parks, we need to understand if
existing rent stabilization regulations treat other rental properties same as apartment complexes. If yes, rent stabilization should be applicable to mobile-home parks also.
.

a)Do attorneys hired by owners of mobile-home parks cite as evidence for their case the fact that the law is usually in the landlords' favor?
No comparison between tenants of apartment complexes and renters of mobile homes.

b)Have rent stabilization laws changed significantly since they were first implemented?
Does not matter.

c)Can tenants living on rent-stabilized properties be evicted if they choose to renew their leases?
NOT a concern here.

d)Do the existing rent stabilization regulations differentiate between laws applicable to owners of apartment complexes and owners of other forms of rental properties?

It compares the laws applicable to tenants of apartment complexes and renters of mobile homes.
Correct.
e)Are tenants in most apartment complexes protected by rent stabilization laws?
Not important.
