Complaint Review: Bay Indies
Bay Indies Equity Lifestyle Properties Buying a Home I cannot Live IN Venice Fl
When my other half and I were inquiring about purchasing a home there that needed a bit of work the park sales associate said that because we were coming from another equity lifestyle park we would not be required to pass the background check they just needed income verification from one of us to show we could pay the rent.
The park we came from was another over 55 park and I lived there for 2 yrs. I bought and sold a mh there. I was a good tenant and always paid my rent
When it came to signing the paperwork at the park office we told them we were working together and both investing time and money into renovating the home so we were both purchasing it and the park sales associate said she would put both our names on the title.
We were never told we could not live in the home.
Our goal was to fix it up and sell it. They gave us 3 months rent free living so we could do so and we did put thousands of dollars and hard work fixing it up and did put it for sale. We have been actively trying to sell it.
It hasn't sold yet. We purchased the home in Feb of 2015 and it is now Dec.
In Sept I moved in myself as I sold another property I was living in. When it came to paying the rent the park gave me a hard time saying I couldn't pay someone elses rent ( referring to my other half). They spoke with him about it and said I could only pay the rent if I signed a form saying I wasnt the approved homeowner. I did, because I didnt want to be behind in rent and they refused to cash otherwise. I did argue that they sold it to me and my name was on title. I didn't understand the approved homeowner thing they spoke of except that they used his income to verify we could pay the rent.
In November I ran ads to lease to someone else to cover the rent until it sells. The park refused to process their park application stating I wasnt the approved homeowner so I wasnt authorized to lease. I told them my other half was in agreement and they said if he was leasing it would be ok.
I lost 7500 in money because they didn't process the application. They were going to rent from Jan1 through Mar 31 at 2500 a month
I tried to play by their rules and get the person approved by the park and I got burned
A couple weeks ago I got a notice of eviction on my door saying I had 7 days to vacate the home.
I have to vacate my own home now and I have paid rent every month and have no trouble in the park other than I am under 55 and them saying I am not approved homeowner. They sold the home to me, put name on title and this is BS.
They should inform people if they are going to sell a home and not allow to live in. They should follow their own rules to get people approved before they sell
