City Council Rejects Site Rent Increase

As follow up to a story we posted Aug. 13, 2012 concerning Cameron’s Mobile Estates in Santee, California attempt to raise rents in their 303 site community by an average of $422. to $557, utsandiego says the Santee City Council unanimously upheld a decision by the Santee Manufactured Home Fair Practices Commission denying an adjustment to rent ceilings for Cameron’s. Representatives for the MHC gave statistical justification for the increase, noting Cameron’s has the lowest rent of all 12 of the MHCs in Santee, and suggested after the meeting that they will likely sue the city. Santee Mayor Andy Voepel, who has long defended the residents, many of whom are on fixed incomes, said, “you’re not out of the woods……if Cameron’s is sold, your rents would go up dramatically. If Cameron’s can’t make a profit, then money will flow somewhere else. This is only the beginning, not the end.” MHProNews has learned that other cities in CA have had to deal with repeated lawsuits from MHC owners trying to repeal rent control.
