My fiancé and I moved into a trailer park in Jan 2019. We needed to find somewhere fast due to his grandmothers passing and her home sold off. We live on his disability of $500 per month. ( I’m in process filing now for my disability from lupus, RA mental health etc). We moved into a trailer park and had to pay previous renters back rent of $1,900 to be allowed the home. Once we moved into the home we realized there was no running water or sewage. The previous renters destroyed the underground piping. We were promised a different home or else the park would have to fix it. Nothing was done over the 3 yrs we resided in that dump. I wrote numerous letters to owner in another state to no avail. Just empty promises by management. We were condemned by the health dept in July of this year. We had no way to move due to lack of funds. We relieved ourselves in buckets and trash bags. We were at the lowest of lows. We quit paying rent since its illegal to profit on a condemned trailer and were attempting to collect our $1900 back. We were immediately evicted for non payment. Our trailer was demo’d along with many other empty rundown homes. Now we are homeless and staying with a friend until we can find somewhere else. I am trying to sue the owner for illegally profiting on our situation. Thanks to our friend we are warm right now.
