The displaced tenants (those without electricity) are staying with friends and family - I am planning on giving them credit on their next month's bill for the days they were displaced.
As for the tenants whose homes were destroyed and are not planning on returning to the park are asking for a refund of their paid rent. Are we obligated to refund them? My theory is that the lot was not burned - and they paid for lot rent. If they had had Insurance they could have replaced their home and put it back on the lot. Am I being unreasonable?
