Water Oak residents angry about stalled work at clubhouse, restaurant
December 1, 2014 By Meta Minton Leave a Comment
An angry group from Water Oak showed up Monday night at the Lady Lake Commission to complain about stalled work that has closed their restaurant and clubhouse.
Residents of Water Oak, a 55-plus community of manufactured homes, are unhappy about renovations to the club house, swimming pool and restaurant that have dragged on and on over the past six months.
Residents said they believed the work was supposed to take 90 days.
Water Oak residents said they have gotten nowhere trying to talk to local management or Sun Communities of Michigan which owns Water Oak.
Water Oak residents said they have been kept in the dark about the status of the projects.
Lady Lake officials said the contractor, who should have been properly managing the permit process, has not been compliant.
Town officials confirmed that work has been done without proper permits, but Lady Lake personnel put a stop to that work.
Thad Carroll of the town’s Growth Management Department said the town has been trying to bring the project into compliance.
“We’ve got their attention,” Carroll told the Water Oak residents.
Town Manager Kris Kollgaard said the town has “bent over backwards” trying to work with Water Oak and the contractor.
“The problem is between the contractor and Water Oak,” Kollgaard said.
I moved into PIne Ridge 5 yrs ago this past December. During very heavy rains, the yards in the park, including mine, flood. I have talked to everyone about this for months, taken pictures, etc. They say that the money is approved to get the problem fixed...that was last year and nothing has been done yet. I was told after my husband left me that a new lease would have to be done and low and behold, 6 months later, still no lease to sign and being charged ten extra dollars a month because of it.....Manager told me about a month or so ago don't worry about the 15 dollars that you owe....now today get pay or quit notice in mail telling me I owe 15 plus rent (already paid) and late fee of 50.......so done!
I am a resident of Oak Island Village in East Lansing, Mi. . while our lot rent continues to go up the quality goes down. Since new management approximately a year ago, things are falling apart. Rules are not being enforced, we have been without a maintenance man for 6-8 months. Street lamps are laying broken in front yards through out the park. Homes are not being properly maintained. My daughter made an appointment to view a home for sale and had to go to the managers house to get him because he forgot.
Streets are not being plowed making it near impossible to get out during heavy snowfalls. My husband and I have lived here 3 1/2 years and have been extremely happy until this past year. We are seriously considering moving before it gets worse. POOR MANAGEMENT!! Please someone come and do a drive through and you will understand. What is our lot rent going for!? NOTHING!
Liars, cheaters, and thieves. The manager at Presidential Estates (Phil) IS incompetent, but I almost feel this is an understatement or maybe even just plain wrong. The more I deal with him and the rest of their corporate staff, I think maybe it's not incompetence, but them just taking advantage of good people. They misrepresent what they offer and lie about rent prices only to jack them up to beyond affordable. I moved in here to get back on my feet after a rough couple years and haven't had much peace since. You're constantly bullied in various ways and promised things they never follow through on. I know of at least 3 people they have taken to court after saying they would work with them. They just turned around and took them to court anyway. To them this is just a business and they don't care about you or your family. If you have to move in here, hire a lawyer to be there with you through the process. Might save you from hiring a lawyer after the fact like me!! Nice facility with nice amenities. Lots of great people live here too. Management is horrible though all the way up the ladder. I would avoid this place at all costs. If you have a story about living here or any other Sun Community, please share it at this email address email@example.com. I found a flyer on out mailboxes one day with that email address asking people to tell their story about living here. With enough people, they won't have a choice but to change something
They're always rude they never take care of the problem when you make a complaint they minimize everything and they live with no regard 2 integrity they never return phone calls or emails or certified letters their website says they will respond in 2 days it's been 4 months Dave not fix the problem now they're crooked office staff is threatening to take me to court who just runs a business like this they suck
Horrible establishment to live under!!! Sneaky company that nickel's and dimes their communities. Miss management of lot rents, utility boxes throughout park are half out of ground, but able to raise lot rent, late fees, service charges to install new landscaping (that died 2xs), redo offices, pay for company trucks. Got rid of original water company to take over themselves, and technically is not considered lot rent, but if not pd with rent you are able to be charged a $55 late fee. Office personal is rude and unprofessional. Google Sun Communities to see other law suit they have been involved in and ratings
On my second shed within this community and manager says it's my problem unless I know who's doing it.. they have destroyed the doors and put holes in it and nothing.. was promised a new one but was given a rusted old one. Manager and employees never leave the office to deal with anything.. broken glass in parking lot is responsibility of homeowners. Pay all this money for what. It's not safe they have even tried to burn my shed down. I would never recommend anyone to live here..
I live in an Arizona community. They keep the park up well and our facilities people do a good job of maintaining the grounds. My biggest complaint is the lot rent going up every year, and getting no reciprocation in like. Many residents have walked away from their homes because they can no longer afford the rent. Management is rude and not friendly at all. I'm stuck here, because I am upside down on my mortgage.
Nasty, nasty with paperwork on your purchase. Closed on a home and 5 weeks later do not have my titles (2 titles for double wide) nor has the title application been filed with the state -and state of FL says they must process within 30 days. No phone numbers, big run around with snickfish.
I lived in a sun jome rental. Iv had to move out adter 3.5 years. Do to th not wanting to fix many health code violation. Iv habe told many office personal anout said problems.
