    That community cost that company lots of money in legal fees. Just cause you have the right to sue for any reason doesnt mean its a good idea. That company needs to increase its price to pay for the legal fees. Also increase the the price to cover any future legal fees. Or find any reason to evict and put a new tenant.

    Great interviews and reporting. Here in Boise, Idaho, the new threat may be Urban Renewal (aka Speculator Subsidy) and Zoning ‘reform’ that entitles higher densities on the land underlying trailer parks. Distant investors has been buying up these communities, jacking up rents, waiting for the big windfall to sell. Many of the communities are quite nice — bigger yards, more open space, more resident investment than the typical new rental compounds.

  7. This is why vice reporting is amazing. Thank you 🙏🏾

  8. What ISNT under threat anymore? Rome fell….Nothing is forever. We are at the brink of something huge, Good luck fellow Human Beings.
