Mobile Home Park Home Owners Allegiance

Sun, Mar 3, 2019 – Kort & Scott Financial Group (KSFG) purchased Sierra Mobile Home Park in Oct 2015 for $3.27MM. Over the past three (3) years, a multitude of issues and challenges have arisen with one being KSFG attempts at converting Sierra Mobile Home Park into an All Ages park.

Due to these ongoing attempts and mobile home owners voicing their concerns, the Santa Clarita City Council implemented a moratorium on the conversion of mobile home parks from 55+ to All Ages on Tue, Jan 26, 2016.

Coincidentally, Kort & Scott Financial Group dba Sierra Corporate Management and dba Sierra MHP Associates LP, delivered a new set of Rules and Regulations to the residents on Tue, Jan 26, 2016, which were dated Jan 26, 2016, stating that Sierra Mobile Home Park is an all age facility with no minimum age requirements for residency.

The initial moratorium was extended on Tue, Jan 24, 2017 and morphed into a coded ordinance on Fri, Jan 26, 2018 titled 17.38.085 SMHP – Senior Mobilehome Park Overlay Zone which protects these three (3) senior (55+) mobile home parks in Santa Clarita, California.

  2. Greenbrier Mobile Estates (318 Spaces)

Note: The 2018-12-03 listing for Space 35 by Ysabel Sosa from Berkshire HomeServices California Properties and the 2018-06-11 listing for Space 55 by Kathy Pritchard from RTH Realty are advertised as Age Restrictions: All Ages. This appears to be in direct violation of the Santa Clarita Municipal Code 17.38.085 SMHP (Senior Mobilehome Park Overlay Zone) which states this…

The signage, advertising, park rules and regulations, and leases for spaces in senior mobilehome parks shall state the park is a senior park.
Santa Clarita Municipal Code 17.38.085 SMHP – Senior Mobilehome Park Overlay Zone

Sun, Jan 1, 2017 – Example of a Senior Park (55+) owned by a Kort & Scott company and converted to an All-Ages Community within three (3) years.

Kort & Scott purchased Rancho Huntington Mobile Home Park, a 55+ community, in late 2012 for $25.4MM. Shortly after purchase, residents were informed that the park would be changing from 55+ to an all ages community. Residents formed a group and took their concerns to the Huntington Beach City Council.

On Mon, Mar 17, 2014, the City of Huntington Beach passed Ordinance No. 4019 which provided a “SR Senior Residential Overlay” to protect the seniors from predatory park owners like Kort & Scott who were/are attempting to convert the 55+ parks to all age communities.

  1. 2013-08-05 – HB Chapter 228 SR Senior Residential Overlay District
  2. 2014-03-17 – HB Ordinance No. 4019
  3. HUD HOPA Questions and Answers
  4. 1999-04-02 – Implementation of Housing for Older Persons Act of 1995 (HOPA)

Based on publicly available information, it appears that Rancho Huntington Mobile Home Park is no longer a 55+ community. Since the ordinance was passed, Kort & Scott have slowly converted the park to all ages in what appears to be a direct violation of the ordinance.

Kort & Scott Financial Group 16-year history of slowly removing rent control protections in the City of Santa Clarita, California through the use of 15, 20 and 25-year long-term leases.

In Sep 2002, Kort & Scott Financial Group (DBAs: Granada Villa GP Corp, Granada Villa LP) purchased the Granada Villa Mobile Home Park located at 18540 Soledad Canyon Road, Santa Clarita, California 91351.

It is a family park and has 179 spaces – only 11 remain under the city’s rent control ordinance as of 2017. It is managed by Sierra Corporate Management, a KSFG company. Current Space Rents (2019) are around $1,350 per month. It is feared that this will be the same fate for the homeowners in Sierra Mobile Home Park.

Kort & Scott Financial Group purchased Sierra Mobile Home Park in Oct 2015. At the time of purchase, Space Rents were advertised around $550 per month. Recent (2019) mobile home for sale listings show that Space Rents have risen to as high as $1,100 per month for new buyers.

The MHPHOA have been recording these Space Rent Increases year over year.

  • 2018-12 – $980
  • 2018-06 – $1,100
  • 2018-06 – $1,000
  • 2017-06 – $750
  • 2016-06 – $650
  • 2015-06 – $550

Note: Mobile home owners who are long time residents who have NOT signed long-term leases are currently protected by the Santa Clarita Manufactured Home Park Rent Adjustment Procedures. Space Rents for long time residents are significantly lower at an average of $550 to $650 per month as of Jan 2019.

In Mar 2018, the secondary laundry facility was removed to make room for 2 mobile homes. After removal, apparently a change in Title 25 requirements interfered with the planned additions. That large space has been vacant since removal. Elderly residents who live toward the rear of the property have been inconvenienced by having to use the primary laundry facility at the front of the mobile home park.

R&R Note: The Kort & Scott Financial Group DBA (Sierra MHP Associates LP) that owns Sierra Mobile Home Park issued a new set of Rules and Regulations on Tue, Jan 26, 2016. On page 21 of 38 is Section 16. (E.) Laundry Facilities which states this...

On Wed, Oct 31, 2018, the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) issued a violation to the homeowner of Space 45 directing them to remove the home from the lot within 30 days. The HCD posted an ORDER TO NOT OCCUPY on the front of the mobile home (see images at right or below).

On Fri, Dec 14, 2018, the home was still in place and the ORDER TO NOT OCCUPY was allegedly removed by the homeowner of Space 45 on or about Sat, Nov 3, 2018.

On Fri, Dec 28, 2018, the oversized mobile home was being prepped for removal and on Fri, Jan 4, 2019, the mobile home was removed. This mobile home had occupied this space since Sun, Dec 3, 2017 when the first half arrived. It has been vacant for 392 days (56 weeks or 1 year and 27 days).

The initial complaint was submitted to the HCD in Jan 2018. The owner of the home was directed to within 30 days remove the home from the lot which would have been in Feb 2018. The mobile home was not removed until Jan 2019.
