Mobile home community in Moss Bluff given 15 days to vacate

MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) - A mobile home community in Moss Bluff has less than two weeks until they'll be removed from their property.

Every resident received a notice to vacate from Pine Haven Mobile Home Park just this past Friday and residents are concerned about their future.

"It's stressful enough raising four kids, much less having this much pressure on us, and worrying about if we're going to lose our home, or where we're going to take our kids," Natasha Thompson said.

"It's wrong. I mean all I could do was cry for three straight days because I don't know what I'm going to do. I have three trailers to move in here and I really don't know what I'm going to do," Romona Durdel said.

Nothing being done by either party in the trailer park acquisition is illegal. State law only requires the owners to give 10 days notice to vacate if the terms of the lease are on a month-to-month basis. The property was sold Dec. 29. The notices were given Jan. 16.

Some residents say two weeks is no where near enough time to find a new park, move the trailer and get it up and running.

"A lot of us have older trailers, they're good living trailers but they are older. Most trailer parks nowadays won't accept older trailers," Thompson said.

The previous owner and an attorney for the new owners could not be reached for comment.
