It’s Auction Block for Crumbling MHC

June 7th, 2012 Comments off

AthensNews tells from Ohio many of the factory-built homes in the Pine Aire MHC in Athens have been abandoned and vandalized following the storm that tore through it nearly two years ago, and now that the community is in foreclosure for back taxes, there is no one to do the management end. An Athens County Common Pleas Court issued a default judgment against owner Ray Croxford in April for $170,000 for three different parcels including Pine Aire. Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said the situation is complicated by the lack of proper lease records for the homesites, but the 42 sites will be auctioned June 27 based solely on the back taxes, sheriff’s fees, and court costs of $152,363. The remaining residents, mostly elderly on fixed incomes, are mowing their own lawns and uncertain as to when they might have to move their homes, some of which will present a definite challenge.
