This property was depicted as my safe place after 4 very months of bouncing around after my COVID eviction.
Having given away most of my furniture, there were things there I could use and things that I helped facilitate giving away for owners.
It was never cleaned and sadly I found the tenet before me was the only child and with her son ( grandson ) had been evicted as well before me !!! Of course stories abound but I find it interesting and example this house which did rent to a man and repairs are being made as noted in this shot . New deck and new paint .
An offer was made to sell at $50 over what was paid and my research showed a reduction in value 10k what was paid by current owners/landlords . I did not find my self desperate enough to buy it at such a high price with such obvious and varied repairs , far greater that was we saw today .
Notices to move (30 days )were the result of my friendship with the only child to whom I was told not to talk to.
Many stories were created and embellished to create the belief that we the renters were to blame and deserved to be ” thrown out ”
Many times I asked ” Am I safe here , and was always reassured that I was .
The male tenet HAS a lease !
The views are magnificent but there is a negative vibe attached to this ” gated community ” where I began to feel I was watched and certainly was true of a repair guy who worked for them , and would just show up , parked in the yard , in the storage shed which he had lots of stuff as well as the owners who allowed that I would have space to store my things , rather than pay storage else where. I was not comfortable with the situation nor the ability of repairs . A washer was replaced with yard sale type 2nds due to a spring having gone bad which was missed by their examination and discovered by my 23 year old repair man !
A very harsh winter , time with no electric power after being told it NEVER happened ! And I was not checked in on by these folks in any way , shape or form .
It was discovered after I left end of July 2021 that dementia and pre existing mental illness ( life long secret ) gripped 1 of the 2 and I had to feel that I had dodged a bullet .
All in all … wasted time
And the betrayal of home and heart that sadly has met its mark with an only child and their son .
It did however result in the acceptance of truths and healing for the child/grandchild
