First off - I am sorry this has happened to you. Let me tell you what your options are.

First off, was the previous the agreement in writing? Is the new one?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no new agreement
Expert:  Ely replied 8 years ago.
Ok, but is the ORIGINAL agreement in writing?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Yes it is.
Expert:  Ely replied 8 years ago.
They can only ask for what is in the contract, but can change their rates if the contract ends and it becomes a separate agreement.

For example: If we agree that I charge you $5 per month from May to July, I can ONLY charge you $5 for those three months. BUT, if after July, I suddenly demand $8, I can, since we're past the contract.

In other words, if they are demanding more money and you're still under contract, point it out to them and say "No, we have a contract, and I won't pay more, and if you try to evict me, I'll sue for breach of contract, negligence, and fraud."

That outta stop them.

Best of luck, and don't forget to press ACCEPT.

Leisure Village Mobile House Park is company which has parks in many states. Their headquarters are located in Georgia. Ohio is just a local branch.

Here is their contact info:

Keep in mind this might be just a larger branch, but this is all the info I could find - but if they say "we're just a DBA" then ask for their headquarters. They are OBLIGATED to tell you. If they don't, threaten to call the BBB.

I wish you the best of luck...
