Judge rules in favor of Besaro tenants

An administrative law judge ruled against the owners of the Besaro Mobile Home Park, who had applied for a major rent increase for park residents. The judge wrote that the owners failed to show the rent increase was needed.

She said the owners were receiving fair rent and hadn’t faced any major new expenses.

The residents aren’t out of the woods yet. The owners could appeal, forcing the residents to shell out more money in attorneys fees (turns out the city would be on the hook for an appeal), or they could make good on their word to close the park.
