I moved into the park in early May 2004.A billboard along the highway stated that it cost 8$ a night/ 149$ a month. But, 149$ a month turned out to be only from May to September. From August to April it was 275$ a month. I lived there for a year. When May came back around I was expecting my rent to go down. But it didnt. It stayed the same. I didnt have the money right away, so I was late making the payment. They taped a notice on my door that Stated I had 24 hours to come up with my payment or vacate the premises. I thought, maybe I was wrong about the rent going down in May, and borrowed the money.
But June came around and it still hadnt gone down.I asked around and found out, that without any notification, they raised the summer rate to 275$ a month and the winter rate to 325$. The billboard stiil states 149$ a month. Now, some of my neighbors have went up to talk to them and they agreed to keep thier rent at 275$ year round. But when I inquired about it, the park management said they'd check my record first. That next month, I received a notice on my bill stating my rent was going up. I guess, because I was late on my May payment. In the whole year before, I was only late one other time. And it was due to the hurricanes and not being able to work for days. I'm not a lawyer and can't say whats legal and whats not. But, I do know the difference between right and wrong, and how they do business is very wrong. Be warned... ladies bathroom and shower was closed for 3 months so they could replace the tiles in the shower, pool heater was down for a month then the filter was down for almost 3 months, all park parties cost money or are BYO, 75$ if they have to mow your ,very small, yard (which they only do once a month).
