RE: Kort & Scott Financial Group

Sat, May 25, 2019 – On Fri, May 4, 2018, the MHPHOA reported that Kort & Scott Financial Group registered three (3) new DBAs.

  1. 2018-03-27 – Tahitian Partners LLC
  2. 2018-03-20 – Tahitian MHP Associates LP
  3. 2018-03-19 – Tahitian Uppertier Associates LLC

According to county records, the purchase of Tahitian Mobile Home Park by Kort & Scott Financial Group DBAs occurred on Mar 30, 2018 and the purchase price was $20,000,200 with an assessed value at $14,680,000.

Fri, May 4, 2018 Updates – On Tue, Mar 27, 2018, Alexander Segal, the Acquisitions Director for Kort & Scott Financial Group registered one (1) new DBA; Tahitian Partners LLC. This brings the total to three (3) DBAs for the Tahitian name.

Sun, Mar 25, 2018 – On Mon-Tue, Mar 19-20, 2018, Alexander Segal, the Acquisitions Director for Kort & Scott Financial Group registered two (2) new DBAs; Tahitian MHP Associates LP and Tahitian Uppertier Associates LLC. These types of DBA filings usually precede a mobile home park purchase. We cannot locate any publicly available information regarding a Tahitian Mobile Home Park sale. This is normal, these are referred to as Pocket Listings or Off-Market NNN Properties. If anyone is aware of a Tahitian Mobile Home Park that is for sale or, it may have sold already, please contact the MHPHOA with more information.

Suspicion: We are aware of two (2) mobile home parks with the name Tahitian; Tahitian Mobile Home Park (236 Spaces, All Ages) located at 15445 Cobalt Street in Sylmar, California 91342 and Tahitian Terrace (158 Spaces, All Ages) located at 16001 Pacific Coast Highway in Pacific Palisades, California 90272. Kort & Scott currently own one (1) mobile home park in Sylmar that we are aware of; Blue Star Mobile Home Park (186 Spaces, All Ages) located at 12401 Filmore Street, Sylmar, California 91342. It would make sense for Kort & Scott to purchase a park within a reasonable radius of the one park they currently own in Sylmar.

RE: Kort & Scott Financial Group

Thu, May 23, 2019 – A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has upheld a roughly $36 million jury verdict in favor 31 families who said were subject to toxic gas leaks and decaying conditions while living in the Friendly Village Mobile Home Park in North Long Beach.

Residents alleged the owners and operators Friendly Village MHP Associates, Sierra Corporate Management and Kort & Scott Financial Group, failed to make repairs or ignored notices about health hazards while raising rents by hundreds of dollars.

In a ruling last week, the judge denied a motion for a new trial and said the defendants “took advantage” of the poor and elderly, knowing they had no means to move their mobile homes.

Lead attorney Brian Kabateck, who represents the residents, said the owners are “bad actors” who bought the park knowing it was built on a landfill and then did nothing as it slowly sunk into the trash below.

They didn’t look at my clients as human beings, they looked at them as living breathing ATM machines, he said.

Mobile Home Parks with 50+ Spaces – Onsite Park Manager Required

Wed, May 22, 2019 – Do you live in a mobile home park with 50 or more spaces? Are you without a trained and qualified Park Manager? Do you know what to do in case of an emergency? Have you tested the mobile home park emergency contact number and/or pager number? Who do you call in case of a utility emergency e.g. electrical, gas, sewage? Who is responsible for executing the Emergency Preparedness Plans for the park e.g. a natural disaster?

California Health and Safety Code Section 18603.(a)

In every park there shall be a person available by telephonic or like means, including telephones, cellular phones, telephone answering machines, answering services or pagers, or in person who shall be responsible for, and who shall reasonably respond in a timely manner to emergencies concerning, the operation and maintenance of the park. In every park with 50 or more units, that person or his or her designee shall reside in the park, have knowledge of emergency procedures relative to utility systems and common facilities under the ownership and control of the owner of the park, and shall be familiar with the emergency preparedness plans for the park.
California Health and Safety Code Section 18603

If you live in a mobile home park with 50 or more spaces, and you are without a Park Manager, you should file an online complaint or a written complaint today with the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). Not having a qualified Park Manager is a risk to the health and safety of the residents.

The MHPHOA have also been tracking “Same Space Turnover” for 280+ mobile homes (2013-2019) in the KSFG/SCM inventory. “Transactions” may include Evictions, Auctions and Sales.

The data shows us that the average length of mobile home ownership in a KSFG owned mobile home park is broken down into 3 timeframes; 12-16 months, 24-28 months and 36-40 months. These timeframes coincide with the 1, 2 and 3 year rent specials being offered for Kort & Scott affiliate owned mobile homes.

  • 5 Transactions – 3 Mobile Homes
  • 4 Transactions – 3 Mobile Homes
  • 3 Transactions – 35 Mobile Homes
  • 2 Transactions – 242 Mobile Homes

BHPH 1/3 Evict 2/3 Auction 3/3 Sell Turnover

Note: 3 Step Process – Step 1: Eviction, Step 2: Auction, Step 3: For Sale

2019 Updates: KSFG DBA Unlawful Detainer Lawsuits have declined significantly since 2017. This could be attributed to changes that have taken place within the KSFG companies. Abraham Arrigotti, past President, departed Sierra Corporate Management in Jul 2016 after 17 years with KSFG companies. It was also reported to the MHPHOA that the KSFG/Hart King (Eviction Attorneys) business relationship was severed in late 2017.
