The finest of manufactured housing communities must be governed to guarantee pride of ownership for both resident and Management. The following covenants, or rules and regulations, have been developed so that you and all others have confidence that our Community will continue to be an outstanding place in which to live. Compliance with the rules will help guarantee a peaceful and quiet way of life for you and your neighbors.
These Community Covenants equal or exceed the requirements of the State of Michigan and the City of Escanaba for the development and regulation of privately owned manufactured housing communities.
Residents and occupants will abide by and conform to these Community Covenants and to further rules that may be issued by Management for the operation and use of the Community. The Owner may terminate any resident's tenancy if any of the occupants of home, in the judgment of the Owner, violates any established rule for the use and operation of the Community, and upon such determination, resident will be required to remove their home from the Community. All expenses incurred in the removal of such home shall be borne by such resident.

Management is not responsible for loss due to fire, storm, theft, or other accident or injury. Each resident must carry whatever insurance is necessary to protect his or her own interests.

Management reserves the right to accept or reject said applicant for any lawful reason. Any prospective resident giving false or incomplete information will be cause for denial of residency or eviction should they become a resident.

At registration, resident shall make a security deposit equal to one and one-half times the current lot rent. Such security deposit will be returned to you by mail when the property is vacated, providing that the property is left in the required condition, a proper 30 day written notice is given, and all moving out procedures are followed. Residents will be responsible for damages exceeding the amount of the security deposit. The deposit is for security purposes only and may not be used for rent.

The State of Michigan requires that all residents be registered at the office. To insure compliance with the law, it is necessary that any changes in your household status be reported to the office, in writing, within five (5) days. There will be no charge for guests visiting.

From time to time it becomes necessary for a Resident to relocate their home or sell a home and move on to other places. Because we are aware of this, Management has found it necessary to set policies and standards to protect our long-term residents and their investments. The following two sections outline our guidelines:


In order to receive your full security deposit, the following steps must be followed:

  1. Resident, if a month-to-month tenant, must provide Management with thirty (30) days prior written notice of their intent to remove the home from the lease site. If the tenancy is pursuant to a written lease and resident intends to remove the home upon expiration of the lease, resident must, at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the lease, provide Management with written notice of their intent to remove the home. The removal of the home prior to expiration of the lease term may result in the resident's continued liability for rent until the expiration of the lease term or until Management is able to lease the homesite, whichever occurs first. All rents and other charges due by resident must be paid in full prior to the removal of the home from the leased site. Failure to provide a timely written notice will result in resident's continuing liability for payment of rent for a thirty (30) day period commencing with the date Management actually receives written notice of resident's intent to vacate or, if the home is removed without any prior written notice, then resident shall remain liable for rent for a thirty (30) day period after the home is actually removed from the Community. Resident must further notify Management at least 72 hours prior to the removal of the home from the Community and Management's representative must be present during the removal of the home. Resident must have the home moved by a professional, licensed, and insured company.
  2. Skirting may not be removed from the home until 48 hours prior to the home being moved.
  3. The leased site must be left in a clean and neat condition. Any improvements or installations placed on the site including but not limited to decks, sheds, porches, tie-downs, anchoring systems, awnings, carports, etc., must be removed from the site. These items do not become fixtures or property of the Community. Concrete slabs, trees, and shrubs shall remain on the site following the removal of the home. Resident is also responsible for any damage to the lawn of the home site or that of other residents or Community common areas that may be caused by the removal of the home.
  4. Failure of resident to complete the clean up or effect any repairs within 24 hours after the home is removed will result in Management performing all necessary work to clean and restore the leased site and grounds. All costs for such work (minimum $50.00 clean up fee) will be deducted from resident's security deposit. All charges over and above the amount of the security deposit will be paid immediately by resident.
  5. Resident will provide Management with a copy of their paid receipt of the final utility bills for the site.
    Management assumes no responsibility in the event that a manufactured housing retailer, bank, or other secured party removes the resident's home from the Community.


The right to occupy a home on the leased site is not unconditionally transferable with the sale or transfer of title to the home. To ensure that the purchaser(s) of your home, should you decide to sell it, will be permitted to keep and occupy the home on the leased site, the following criteria must be met and policies followed. If the policies set forth are not followed, the privilege of leaving the home in the Community shall be immediately and permanently denied. Non-compliance with these policies will also result in a Notice to Quit Just Cause Termination to be served on the resident.

    10. All rents and other charges must be paid current prior to resale or transfer of the home.

If your home meets these requirements, you must contact the office prior to listing the home for sale for an inspection appointment. The charge for this inspection will be $30.00 and must be paid prior to the inspection. The purpose of this inspection will be to ensure your home and site are in com Community standards. An inspection will consist of a preliminary inspection to
determine what needs to be done and a final re-inspection and if an additional inspection is required, a new inspection fee will be charged. The inspection is valid for ninety (90) days and if your home is not sold within that period, a supplemental inspection is required. All items that need repair or correction must be completed prior to Management's final authorization of resale. The inspection or authorization of resale are not a warranty, expressed or implied, to any person as to the condition of any part of the home or its accessories. The inspections are for aesthetic reasons.
One 12" by 18" FOR SALE sign may be placed in the front window but only after the inspection fee has been paid and full repairs and corrections have been completed and the resident has received written authorization for resale.

All potential buyers must meet with Management, apply for and be approved for residency PRIOR to the closing on the sale of the home. If the purchaser of a home occupies the home without first having obtained Management approval, the purchaser will be deemed to be a trespasser and may be evicted from the Community. The resident of record will remain responsible for all rent and other charges which may accrue and will be subject to having the home evicted from the Community for non-compliance with the rules.

    reserves the right to refuse any pet at their discretion. All pets that are approved are on a ninety (90) day probation period, and removal is imminent if the pet owner ignores their responsibility or should the pet become a nuisance in any manner.


Advertising, solicitation, or delivering handbills is not permitted. Management reserves the right to communicate with residents through the distribution of written materials from time to time. No commercial enterprise or business shall be conducted in the Community


Management shall have the right to enter onto the homesite to inspect, Tepair, or make alterations or additions to the premises or the utilities situated on the leased site or for the purpose of protecting the Community. Management may enter upon the homesite at all reasonable times but not in a manner or at such times as to interfere unreasonably with resident's quiet enjoyment. Management shall have no right to enter a home unless the resident's prior written consent has been obtained or, if such written consent is not obtained, to prevent imminent danger to the occupant(s) of the home, to other residents of the Community, or to the Community.


In a Community such as ours, residents are reminded that lots are small and homes are close together. It is essential that all residents respect the property rights and quiet enjoyment rights of the other residents. But sometimes problems arise between neighbors (stereo noise, parking, etc.). Because it is necessary for residents to get along with each other, we ask that you first discuss and try to resolve the problem with your neighbor. If you are unsuccessful in resolving the problem, please feel free to turn in a complaint to the office. All complaints must be in writing and will be answered as soon as possible.

Should you have a complaint regarding Management's operation of the Community, you must turn in a written complaint to Management. If Management fails to handle the complaint, under the Manufactured Housing Commission Act, you have the right to file a complaint that pertains to violations of that act or rules published under the Act. Before a complaint can be filed under this Act or these rules, you must notify the Community Management, retailer, broker, or servicer in writing that a problem exists. If they do not provide a reasonable response within fifteen (15) days of receipt of your complaint, you may file a complaint with the Michigan Department of Consumer and Industry Services, Corporations and Securities Bureau, Manufactured Housing Division, P.O. Box 30222, Lansing, MI 48909. Please note that the Manufactured Housing Division can accept only violations pertaining to the Manufactured Housing Commission Act or Rules. Complaints pertaining to Community rent costs do not fall under this Act,


The Manufactured Home Buyers and Residents Handbook which explains the rights and responsibilities under the Michigan Manufactured Housing Commission Act, is available at the Office or from the Department of Consumer and Industry Services.
