Inconsistent, unfair charges

I had to leave Good Life RV Resort early last spring due to Covid but did not receive a partial credit, although at least one other renter last year did receive a credit for medical reasons. Management lied to me by saying, "No credits or refunds are given for early departures". I began trying to contact Cal-Am last April, they have not replied to any of my texts or voice mails.

User's recommendation: We have enjoyed Good Life for 7 years, but now do not trust Cal-Am to be fair or honest.

Poor management

I live in Eldorado villas mobile park near Tigard Oregon. The management is poor to non existent. We have constant water system leaks that result in high bills. Management takes no steps to find the leaks until They are a problem. Recent months water Bill Was $100. I wonder if corporate is aware of this lack of management!?

User's recommendation: Replace mansgement.

As a prospective property tenant, I quickly learned that Cal-Am is very sketchy in their practices... while in the midst of purchasing a home sold by Cal-Am, with an $80K down payment and external financing, Cal-Am demanded copies of both my social security card and my...

As for the Medicare card copy request, I'm pretty sure that most places require 3 forms of ID, these days. So, if you refused to provide your SSN, it's not completely unreasonable for them to ask for a copy of your Medicare card, to use as your 3rd form of ID...

However, if you feel an intuition that makes you uncomfortable, it's always best to follow your instincts. There are plenty of other places available to rent.

Strange rules

we moved in to our mobile home in 1994. We had 4 parking spaces assigned to us according the blueprint. People moved in with work trucks and 3 to 4 cars. Running out of space. Now i lost all parking spaces to strangers, who claim my parking area as their own. My husband passed away and I have no cars. Too bad, so sad!! Can't have family or friends over anymore. Parking area full. No respect for neighbors. Neighbor was peeing in my backyard! Totally fine in their eyes.

Home owner in Mesa Regal

Mesa Regal is increasing our yearly lot rent by $400.00 for the 2020/2021 season. This is more then a 5% increase when the growth rate [GDP] for the US is estimated to be -4.8% for the year! Where is the rational in that?

I live in Sunlife year round.

I believe Cal Am is using the Covid 19 as an excuse to save money during. They are providing notthing for the residents. If restaurants are open, stores and parks are open, why is our staff not available to us? We are not allowed to use any of the facilities except the pool. We have several disabled residents who are refused the use of the disabled showers. Our rent has been increased while a lot of other companies are sending money back to their customers due to the decrease in use. Our managers are extremely non-responsive to our needs and I quote" Never Knock on my door again." We could easily be having our off-season movies while following all CDC guidelines. We also could be using the card room under those same guidelines. Cal Am is saving thousands on air conditioning and maintanance and cleaning while the residents are being ignored. This while staff is locked away in the office and being served catered lunches. What happened to customer service?

User's recommendation: Please save your money, buy from a reputable company that cares about their customers.

The operator who I had talked to wanted me to leave my e-mail and phone number

Well I tried to call island in the sun in Clearwater Florida to find out when the pool is going to reopen. The person for corporate office asked me to leave my e-mail and phone number and also my name ! I do not want to cause any problems I was just wondering when the pool will open . I have called the office spoke to Debbie manger is was very bull with me . I just feel we pay our rent money on time at least they can get actives going in this park . Is that too much to ask for?

User's recommendation: Not to come here at cal am in Clearwater Florida.

Reason for review is the fact that many people are almost paying almos the same price for the home as well the lot rent when you buy the home you are expecting to pay what is rassonable for the lot re

the problem is that when the people buy a home everything is so nice but once you moved you find out that you going to pay the same amount that you pay for house in your lot rent.as a customer i'll found out,that you don't have to pay lot separate from your mortgage,you suppose to pay lot .rent included in your mortgage,right now im paying...653 lot rent and 901 mortgage.what you want is that the people get tired of that place and move out so can sale the same house for the amount that you want to sell,and that's not right.

User's recommendation: ill recomend to the new tenants to buy in somewere else,cause that an abuse,what you doing in there.

my solution is that you guys as a part of an important,corporate see the situations of the tenants.and stop raising the lot rent as you are doing it now thats not right for the people that are already living there

Rent increase

During the 2019-**** season the park was under construction. Arrived October 2019, no pool, no hot tub, no patio, no bar, no restaurant. Pool open/ patio open mid December with limited food & service. January 2020 pool closed due to poor maintenance. February pool again closed & drained. Large bar poorly staffed, wait times long for drinks & food. March all facilities closed due to virus. Now Cal Am is raising rent another $400.00 when other companies are compensating the people. Their attitude is move if you don’t like it. Staff & management are rude & uncaring. Treat like children no respect. Most facilities are dirty & not maintained properly. I would not recommend buying or living in any CalAm park. Sun Life is terrible. Everyone so unhappy with treatment.

User's recommendation: Poor place to live.

I agree. Same issue in Oregon.

Multiple communities I checked into have the same complains...... ties to Scientology explain everything.

I was going to purchase a mobile home from Crystal at Gettysburg estates but the deal fell through! My wife and I moved on. Crystal called us to tell us we would have to come in and sign a release to get our one thousand dollars deposit back. She said it takes 2-3weeks to mail it to us Its going on 5 weeks. I feel she's giving us the run around. My wife called her around April 6th and had to leave a voice message. The wife told her to call us and we haven't heard from her! I called Valairea at your corporate office today and she was very helpful. She said she would get on top of it. Thanks for your concern, Jim Dragon
