questions & answers

Question: I own 2 mobile homes in a mobile home park. One of them I live in and the other I bought and was fixing it up and was going to make plans on what to do with it. I got behind on lot rent on the other place by a month and before the next month they had me in court evicting me. In a week after that that they broke into the place and changed the locks. Within the month the sold it and I am the owner and have a title. I was in process of trying to sell it so I could pay the back rent and make some money back on it. Never given any notice that this was there intent. What do I do too stop this.

Answer: There are specific rules about when and how a landlord may take possession and eventually ownership (after abandonment) of a mobile home whose owner was evicted. You should contact an attorney. There are links to free and low-cost legal services on this website, and the LegalLEARN Helpline toll-free telephone number is 1-866-637-5341.
