Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: I own my trailer but rent the space. The owner of the park passed away and we were left alone for a few months. Rent checks were returned and it was chaos. I received a certified letter saying I have not paid rent for 4 months, when I know I have. I have proof for 1 of those months, but cannot find the others. The office is open for 3 hours a day while I'm at work, so I stick it in the outside mailbox that is locked. Other tenants have received the same notice and said they also paid. Some tenants are also suing the park for abandonment. What can I do to prevent paying rent twice? Thank you

Answer: If not all of the rent checks that you placed in the mail box outside the office during that four-month period were returned, then you may wish to check with your financial institution – whether on line or in person – to confirm that those checks were never cashed and then have those checks canceled. That way you should be able to avoid paying for any month twice.
