Equity Lifestyle Properties ELS Westpark Mobile Home Park Raised lease twice in one year Wickenburg Arizona
We purchased a mobile home in Westpark. Our lease was $632 per month. We moved in July 2017. In August we received our first rate increase to $825. At the same time we received a property tax bill.....wait what? Why are we paying the property taxes on a leased lot? I spent two months arguing with them and with that said we decided to sell our mobile home and buy a house.
The problem is this is a 55+ retirement community and all the residents are in fixed incomes so raising leases every year hurts many of the older residents. One of our neighbors were an elderly couple that were 96 and 98. They couldn’t afford to turn their air conditioner on. Another neighbor has been there 38 years and with the new rate hike she was having to consider alternatives.
We were lucky and our house sold quickly. Others haven’t been so lucky and their mobile homes aren’t selling because the monthly lease is too high.
I am worried about the older people that have no one to fight this for them. This company is driven by greed. When people can’t sell their homes they end up giving them to the park.
It is my hope that companies that do this end up being held accountable.
