Challenge to City of Carson RSO Rejected by 9th Circuit Court

Mon, Apr 23, 2018 – On April 23, 2018 the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued an important Opinion overturning a lower District Court decision which had awarded a large monetary judgment in favor of notorious park owner James Goldstein. Entitled Colony Cove Properties, LLC v. City of Carson, the case involved the City of Carson’s “Mobile Home Space Rent Control Ordinance” (“RSO”), and a 2008 application by Goldstein’s LLC which sought a $342.00 rent increase from each homeowner.

RE: BoaVida Communities, Abraham Arrigotti, Drita Bronkey

Thu, Apr 12, 2018 – Despite rain and wind, residents from the former Wagon Wheel mobile home park and Valley Oaks staged a protest across Willits City Hall Wednesday, April 11 at Bud Snyder Memorial Park to bring awareness to their problems with an out of the area property management. BoaVida Communities took over ownership and management of the parks last year and the residents want the Willits City Council to pass a rent stabilization ordinance similar to Ukiah’s and other nearby cities in the area.

Tenants said they will protest every other Wednesday to coincide with City Council meetings until the issue has been resolved.

Representatives from BoaVida Communities did not return emails seeking questions posed by residents regarding issues relating to park management at Wagon Wheel and Valley Oaks.

Crestmont Estates is fully occupied and was originally developed in 1970 as a 263-space community. Subsequent construction in 2007 added 26 spaces. The community has a pool, clubhouse with recreation room, and central laundry.

Kort & Scott Financial Group is the 13th largest owner and operator of MHCs in the country. Based in Southern California, Kort & Scott has acquired over 9,500 MHC properties to date and currently manages a portfolio spanning California, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico.

Capital One’s Chad Thomas Hagwood originated the loan and Brandon Pate, also with Capital One, managed the transaction. The 10-year, adjustable-rate loan has six years of interest-only payments followed by amortization on a 30-year schedule.

Tue, Apr 3, 2018 – Capital One has provided the Kort and Scott Financial Group with a $48.8 million Fannie Mae structured adjustable-rate loan for Lincoln Center Mobile Home Park, a 305-unit manufactured housing community in Cypress, California.

‘Thanks to our close working relationship with Kort & Scott and Fannie Mae, we were able to structure and close an exact fit for the borrower’s needs’, Chad Thomas Hagwood, Capital One Multifamily Finance’s senior vice president of its Southeast region, said. ‘The sponsor is using the proceeds to pay off their existing loan and secure funds to further enhance this already great community.’

The development was 92 percent occupied at the time of the loan.

The Kort and Scott Financial Group is currently the 13th-largest owner/operators of MHCs in the U.S., with 38 communities in its portfolio, representing 8,600 MHC sites in California, Colorado and Arizona.


Note: According to the Orange County Tax Assessor, the property (land including common areas) was assessed at $23,308,579 as of Jan 1, 2017.

Resident Question: So how did they borrow double what it was worth?

Answer: The signing of the long-term leases aids in the refinancing of a parks debt, as a major component of an appraisal of the parks value is based on its rental income potential over time. These long-term leases lock in guaranteed annual rental increases at a minimum of 6-8% for the leased spaces.
