SURREY, B.C. — Residents of the trouble-plagued King George Mobile and RV Park in Surrey want the province to beef up its laws to better protect their homes, writes CBC.ca.
The tenants say public buildings are crumbling, amenities are closed and the landlord keeps raising the rent.
They’ve formed a homeowners society and started a petition to have the provincial government change the Manufactured Home Park Tenancy Act so that specific rent money is set aside for the general maintenance and upkeep of the park, writes CBC.ca.
CBC.ca reports that Elaine Lafontaine, who’s lived in the park for ten years, says the park provides much-needed affordable housing, but claims that prostitution, drug dealing and decay are dragging it down. She blames the landlord for not making vital repairs to buildings and pipes.
