Woman in need who is forced to make home upgrades gets help

FEDERAL HEIGHTS, Colo. -- The FOX31 Problem Solvers are getting results for woman in need who is being forced to upgrade her mobile home on a week’s notice.

Federal Heights mobile home park sent threatening notices ordering residents to pay for pricey upgrades or face legal action.

Tina Meyers said she felt bullied by her landlord. She was running high on stress and low on hope at the time. By Tuesday, she was feeling much better.

The longtime resident of Kingsley Management Corporation’s Kimberly Hills mobile home park in Federal Heights soon will have new skirting around her mobile home.

The skirting is required under new rules that residents said they never agreed to in their leases.

“We’re going to replace it all,” said Chris Vigil, owner of CV Restoration.

Vigil saw Meyers’ story. Knowing she’s under a tight deadline, Vigil quickly offered his services for free.

“That’s what we try to do,” Vigil said. “We try to help as many people as we can.”

CV Restoration said the cost would have been more than $800 -- something Meyers said she can’t afford.

Kingsley Management hasn’t responded to a request for comment. The company previously forced longtime residents at its Broomfield location, including a Pearl Harbor survivor, to remove fencing.
