When we purchased a home ini Southfork Mobile Home Community, AKA CMH Parks, Inc, we were told that we would pay a lease every month. I understood that to be fair but I did not understand why it was going to go up every year.
I was told we could do what we wanted with the property such as planting flowers shrubs. I asked about a Greenhouse (small) and possibly a Spa or Hot Tub. I was told that would be fine.
I looked at the papers and asked about the 2 sentence paragraph that says you have to get permission from them. I asked if I could have it in writing to confirm what they told me about the Greenhouse and Spa or Hot Tub. they informed me that it would be ok and I did not need anything in writing. I took them at their word.
After moving in we discovered that the entire underpinning was faulty and needed to be replaced. They said they were not responsible for this and we should have gone under the Mobile Home and checked it out. I asked them how we could have done this when they assurred us it would be perfect. Then the window in the kitchen broke and had to be replaced. They said that they would take care of this at no charge. It took them from May 1 2007 to June 18 2007 before they replaced it.
On June 7 2007 my husband started the Greenhouse. The Assistant Manager lives directly across the street and the Manager drives by here at least once a day. The maintence people have been over here and asked what it was going to be we told them.
They asked if they could also use the Greenhouse and I said sure. Everyone including the Management people said nothing about having to ask them for permission. Then all of a sudden on June 21 2007 a man who said he worked for the Community told us we would have to tear it down. He stated that we could only plant flowers etc. and nothing else on the property.
I called the Manager and she said it we put one up then everybody else would want one. I asked what the problem was because I informed them when we purchased the Home of our intentions. She said well she did not remember it. I again questioned her as to why someone did not say anything sooner than on completion.
She said no one noticed. I told her that it was hard to miss. I informed her about the maintenance personnell and the fact she drove by and her Assistant live across the street and had been over several times.
She said that she had not really paid any attention.
I assurred her that we would not be taking it down and she said she would send over someone who would. I advised her that this would be tresspassing and she said the land belonged to CMH Parks Inc and not us.
I fell like we were lied to from the beginning and they are coming up with anything to create bad feelings. The gentleman across the street on the corner, said he had to wait for 4 months before they decided to let him place large rocks around the edge of his property so no one could turn the corner and drive into his property.
I am very disappointed. I am a senior citizen and have a Hoveround Electric chair. This property is worse than an appartment complex with placement of speed bumps. They are all different sizes and approxtimately 50 feet apart. they are all in need of fixing to make even.
I intend to contact the City of Wylie to detemine who is responsible for this problem. I have had close calls when I go down the street with the speed bumps. I have come close several times to turning over.
I am going to report this to the Federal Government on Americans With Disabilities. They are in charge of streets, curbs and speed bumps.
I will not let this problem go away.
