resIDeNts love to complaIN
How many times have you heard your friends and neighbors complain about park issues? But where does complaining get them? Usually nowhere. Park owners know this. That’s why they usually don’t respond to complaints. They know you will eventually get tired and go away. And the cycle continues - nothing is solved and you get more complcient and apathetic. Just what the park owner likes. You’re afraid to rock the boat so you sit back and do nothing. You don’t challenge anything because you believe there is NOTHING you can do.

chIcKeN lIttle sYNDrome
You may remember Henny Penny, also known as Chicken Licken or Chicken Little. It is a folk tale with a moral in the form of a cumulative tale about a chicken who believes the world is coming to an end.

the threats are real
The threats are real and we don’t know when one will appear. This is what we do know: 1. Park owners hate rent stabilization and vacancy control. They have been fighting on both a state level and a local level to eliminate these ordinances for years. They have spent millions of dollars and considerable time and effort. They will not stop! Here are just a few instances: a. Propositon 199 in 1996, b. Proposition 90 in 2006, c. Proposition 98 in 2008, d. Los Angeles Cardenas Motion December 2012, e.

That means higher and higher rents and less park maintenance resulting in more money out of your pocket, February 2013  818-886-6479  /  800-929-6061

decreasing equities and parks becoming more and more trashy. Is that what you want?

let’s BreaK the cYcle!
It is a new year. It is time for a change. Let’s break the cycle of complacy and apathy. Let’s replace it with a renewed hope that each one of us can make a difference. But where do you start?

Who Do You trust
Why should you trust us? Because we are mobilehome owners. We experience the same issues/problems that you do in your park. And we bring many years of advocacy to the table. Just read what residents said about THE VOICE that we published for seven...
