Christian company’s Broward property sale sparks ‘unintentional’ eviction fears

PEMBROKE PARK, Florida. – Silvia Diaz held up a copy of a check made out to Lakeside Park Estates. She paid $7,920 to park her RV there for a year starting March 15.

Diaz was very stressed and she wasn’t alone. She and all residents of the Lakeside Park Estate, including many retirees, were given a 30-day eviction notice.

Diaz’s neighbor also held up his lease papers and said, “With property prices, where are people supposed to live?”

The property owner recently sent out a follow-up letter, saying: “We apologize for the confusion this unintentional misunderstanding may have caused. We look forward to working with everyone involved.”

Diaz’s neighbor Walter Jaramillo suspected the property was being sold. A Broward County government official recently confirmed that the property was sold for redevelopment.

The Trinity Broadcasting Network, an international Christian television network, owns the property at 3300 Pembroke Road, just west of Interstate 95 in Pembroke Park.

Caridad Vega said she wasn’t ready to move. She has leukemia and is scheduled to undergo a bone marrow transplant in April. Fernando Acuna and his family have lived there for two decades and he said everyone is afraid of being homeless.

“That’s a terrible man: That’s just one of 100 sob stories,” Acuna said, adding that he set up GoFundMe to help with a move.

Diaz said she finds it ironic that a Christian organization would hurt so many people so quickly.

“Many people say they are Christians, and even my Bible says many will come to him in the last days and say to Jesus, ‘Have I not done this? Didn’t I prophesy? Didn’t I heal myself?’ And he says, ‘I don’t know you!’”

Broward County is working with the property manager to provide extensions. The property owner and the property manager declined to comment.
