Recently our county has been invaded by a for-profit housing corporation known as Inspire Communities. It is trying to buy up mobile home parks, then raise the rents unfairly. We are trying to get our representatives to enact a rent stabilization ordinance but are meeting with much resistance-- ours is a strong property-owners rights county--and now are faced with the daunting task of mounting the initiative process. We need help! William Constantine (atty- Santa Cruz0) has said he will write a "universal" ordinance that can be adapted by any community, but will need appx $5,000. to do so.

THIS OLD DRACONIAN 3 DAY EVICTION NOTICE LAW MUST CHANGE.

PROPERTY OWNERS AND THE RICH HAVE BUILT EXTENSIVE WEALTH DURING THE PAST 20 YEARS.. WHILE THE POOR AND MIDDLE CLASS HAVE BEEN NEGLECTED BY THE TOP AND UNDERMINED FROM THE BOTTOM !!!!!!

SPREAD THE WORD TO CONNECT WITH STATE AND NATIONAL LEADERS INCLUDING LAW MAKERS AND TENANT ADVOCATES TO CHANGE THIS UNDERMINING AND HARMFUL LAW.

THIS LAW IS A TRUE SYMBOL OF GREED, SELFISHNESS, INEQUALITY, UNFAIRNESS AND WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR STATE AND COUNTRY !!!!!

BE AN AMERICAN.. BE A PATRIOT.. CHANGE THIS LAW NOW.

My name is Ilene mother of two children, daughter 4, son 6, my spouse and my service dog. My current situation/status as of 02/20/2015, Homeless! After 5 long years of renting from a large apartment complex owned by a very large corporation, my family and I spent the holidays packing. In august of 2012 I had moved from one side of Coralaire Apts., to a larger 2 bd apt., in the same complex. I had noticed off the back that something just wasn't right, the smell, the discoloration of areas around and under kitchen sinks and certain walls.

When a recent for-profit investment corporation (Inspire Communities) began the purchasing process of its second mobile home park in Humboldt County, tenant's sat up and took notice. Their first purchase has already suffered two rent increases in less than a year, the second park will have at least a 10% increase within 90 days of closing escrow. Mobile home park tenants throughout the county are banding together to put forward a park rent stabilization initiative after being shot down by a County Supervisor's Advisory Committee in McKinleyville in January.

The largest no fault eviction since the I Hotel in the 70's, or so we are told, enters phase 4. We have stood up in the face of corruption and flagrant speculation because we feel like greed and power have influenced the code enforcement process. Search google for 1049 Market 94103.

Terminating my tenancy for no reason after 10 years of paying my rent on time at a senior apartment. Not returning my phone calls and direct manager says it is out of her hands. Causing stress and chest pains and a complete hardship to move. They say I have no rights but this is a federally subsidized facility.

Hi! My name is Tamora and I have been living at my present residence going on for three years now. My story is much to long to list here because it involves too many issues that require a lot of explanation. However, I can give you a little background of my present situation. What I am mainly dealing with is people that have varying degrees of both mental and physical incapacities as well as drug abuse, etc... Also I am having to deal with a landlady who is all of the above, plus, she has anger issues that are quite severe!

Tamora

Hi! My name is Tamora and I will give you a brief history or background about my tenancy issues. As long as I been residing here I California I for one reason after another had to relocate six or seven times because of either of unscrupulous landlords/ladies and bad tenants! My current situation is even more dire!!!!! To be brief I had to take matters into my own hands and call law enforcement three separate times because of harassment and retaliation!!!!
