Living Conditions in Greenville Mobile Home Park Raise Concerns
Posted on behalf of Harbin & Burnett on Jan 11, 2016 in Premises Liability
Residents of Dixie Estates mobile home park near Whitehorse Road in Anderson have voiced concerns over the poor living conditions of the area. Mold, maintenance issues and safety concerns were among the many issues discussed at a community meeting on Jan. 8.
A mother of two reported a problem with black mold in her home which caused breathing problems for her children. Her daughter lost her job because of the problem and her son had to miss several days of school due to asthma.
Another man, who had lived there for a month, complained of leaky toilets and a broken furnace. After his wife wrote a letter to the property managers, they were told they would have to live there a year before they fixed anything.
A 60-year-old woman had to leave her home after a circuit breaker caught fire and left her without power for nine days. She ran out of money staying at a motel and had to use a kerosene heater to say warm.
Many other residents at the meeting expressed complaints of mold, repairs not being made and general unresponsiveness of the property owners.
Toxic Mold Accountability
Toxic mold can cause serious respiratory problems. There is no cure for asthma and it requires a lifetime of medical treatment, prescription drugs and can limit you or your children's ability to exercise or participate in rigorous activities.
Property owners have a responsibility to keep their facilities safe and secure. When their negligence causes people to suffer, they should be held accountable.
