Beacon RV Park in Ilwaco.

ILWACO, Wash. — The new owners of an RV park have violated multiple provisions of Washington’s landlord-tenant laws, according to the state.

In a cease-and-desist order and a notice of violation issued in July, the Attorney General’s Manufactured Housing Dispute Resolution Program found that Michael and Denise Werner used improper notices and intimidation to try to evict tenants of Beacon RV Park. The couple retaliated after tenants filed complaints with the attorney general’s office by decreasing park services, failed to offer tenants written rental agreements and have not given people a way to pay rent, and violated local rules around maintaining the RV park, the state found, among other issues.
