NAPLES, Fla. - Many reesidents of the Naples Estates Mobile home park gathered together savings and loans from family members to pay back rent. The issue stems from a lawsuit filed by the residents against the owner of the property. The residents say they were supposed to have been given, "first right of refusal", when the park was sold back in the late 90s to its current owner. Since that time their rent has increased substantially. Some residents complain the increases were too high and refused to pay more than a 6 percent increase per year. The difference, between what they did pay and what they should have been paying is what is in question. A Collier County Judge ordered the residents to put that balance in the court registry until the issue is resolved. The only problem is some of the residents can't come up with the $10,000 back payment and now may face eviction.
