Neighbors beware! i am a charter member of the Oregon State Tenants Association and President of the Arbor Manufactured Home Park chapter and I'm writing this review to be a good neighbor to any prospects considering moving in. We were recently purchased by Holt Opportunity Fund in december 2013 and life has been a nightmare ever since! First of all they gave several developmentally disabled residents illegitimate 24 hours notices to vacate and then took chainsaws and dismantled their homes within days. When i spoke to the manager she just laughed and said they left voluntarily and then fluttered her eyes trying to be cute! They evicted an 85 year old old woman suffering with alzheimer for being late on her rent! Her grand children had informed the manager that if Delores was ever late on the rent just to go down and pick up the check and that she was sometimes forgetful..Which had been a common practice for more than a year...until december (Imagine that) then after letting her get 3 months behind on rent they threw this 32 year resident out on the streets...she died a couple weeks later. Then they threw out a group of old vietnam vets who have been here since the 70s...claiming they needed to to do such extensive repairs to their lots that there was no way to allow them to stay....they are now homeless! The extensive repairs...they laid some new gravel down and are now selling park model recreation vehicles there instead, that they got for 22 grand and selling for 45 grand...370 square feet...we have 55 vacancies out of 127...have you ever heard of a park having that many vacancies?Within 15 days of purchase all garbage was shutdown without notice for three weeks-this was at christmas time and directly after a big storm proceeded to give all the nice homes eviction notices for debris in their yards...I immediately took photos and only the nicest homes received these notices. Ones they could make a few dollars on! Then 30 days later we all received a second eviction notice for the same thing..placing all of us one notice away from a legal eviction this was the new owners first 45 days of ownership..sounds like a plan to me! I then brought attorneys to my home..they could not believe that we had gotten notices on such a pristine yard,one that was obviously well maintained... and beautiful I might ad! Then they attempted to create a set of rules that were not only insane but illegal...and so we pulled together as a community and voted these rules out twice..The manager said one of the owners told her to strictly enforce the rules anyways and are attempting to roll over us like a steamroller! legal aid is stepping in and helping us attempt to solve this dilemma, she evicts people after withholding their water bills for several months at a time and then slapping them with 600 t0 700 dollar water bills. Evicting them because their behind on their utilities. they are taking advantage of many of us because people being low income and many hispanics do not know all their rights ! she hides when its time to pay rent so she make you late on your rent 3 times so she can evict you! at the same time then claims everyone is lying about this but we have many many firsthand witnesses! they are receiving grants with the promise of improving life for all the low income families here! all of the neighbors say they feel like their experiencing a form terrorism in their own homes.living in constant fear is not improving our lives. we are not even allowed to speak with any of the owners One of the owners is Todd the guy in charge of construction yells and screams at anyone who attempts to talk with him and is very abusive.,only the manager whom 90% of us completely distrust! This is a branch off holt homes We all own our homes here..were just renting a space...they act like they own our homes...I just paid off a 15 year mortgage...Another story of big corporate america sticking it to the little guy who works 40 hours a week,pays there taxes and because were in poverty is discriminated against ... we do have rights! i will keep you the public informed of all future goings on-good or bad..and please pray for us

Stay away from this place. It is dirty and there is alot of crime going on. Not so savory people hang out around here and the cops come by alot. I would not recommend it to anyone.
