the mobile home park he owns in laporte, also is very poorly ran. the roads have craters in them, and we lose water atleast 10 times a week, atleast!!!. sometimes 3-4 times a day, the pump house has junk every where around it and the front building is an eye sore with no siding and bullet holes in the windows. he never pays for trash pick up, and thats jus great considering the children wait for the bus near there in the morning and there is trash every where. there are condemed homes in the park,som homes with profane language on them, and he keeps raising lot rent with no improvements. very disscusting and used to be a very nic place to live what a shame nice people have to deal with. please dont move here its horrible,and you will get screwed by jacob pasternac

Jacob pasternac gives new meaning to the term slumlord.
He intentionally screws people over with all his fake promises about fixing the homes that are out there as well as charging extremely high deposits that he has no intention of returning. The people of that park need to band together and get rid of his slummy butt, the harrassment and horrible living conditons like the gray sewer water, there has been a sample taken to the health department to be analyzed. Most of the houses out there should be condemned or he should be forced to clean the area up and become an upstanding citizen which we all know will never happen.

Jacob is a very poor landlord.. He has lot's of problems with his parks and does not have any intentions to fix them. I was told many lies about him fixing things and also told how important it was to keep my yard up and taken care of, however my neighbor is allowed to throw his trash outside next to his home. It is not sanitary to live in his parks. The water in my kitchen comes out RED from rust and who knows what else is in it. I refused to drink it due to fear of getting ill. In the three years I lived in the park he raised the lot rent twice stating it was for maintenance fee's and improvements, however it only got worse! Nothing was improved. He lies to people to get them in the park, just for money. He also moves people in to houses with no running water or bath tubs, holes in floors and other major problems. It is very sad to know that he has morals like this. I would say he makes slumlords look good.

I agree with everything said here! And I lived there in 2011. Nothing has changed except for possibly getting worse. yet everytime I hear of him being taken to or going to court he either wins the case or the judge doesn't order for the park to be investigated! Complaints have been filed with City, County, and State yet no one seems to care about Jacob Pasternac being a SLUM LORD and still allowing him to rent! He hasn't possessed a permit for the park since 2004! Renters and buyers BEWARE!!!!
