Can a trailer park just take your trailer

8 Replies

I just read my rental agreement and no where in it does it say if evicted.Can they take procession of your moblie home.all it says is the reasons that they can evict a person.The landlord stated to me two days ago that they are filling the paperwork this week to take procession of my trailer. What can i do to stop this from happening as i can't afford to get a Attorney.?

They have to go thru the courts to take your trailer . BUT they can hook it up to a truck and put it on the street if you have been evicted . 

@Bruce A Plumley they can also leave the trailer in place but file liens against it that must be paid before you sell it to someone else. Why don't you pay your rent? Instead of a lawyer maybe you need help from some other agency? Or were you evicted for another reason? 

After reading my rental agreement no where in it does it say they can file for procession of your moblie home if your evicted...Now i can not afford to hire an attorney so what can i do. The property management told me Monday that they will be filing paperwork this week to take procession of my mobile home..I will say my trailer was made in 1959 so it's really to old to move..I am trying to sell it as i have it listed on sites and also ask the park management if they would buy it.

@Bruce A Plumley Some municipalities have free or reduced cost legal aid for tenants. I would look into this first. If not, your next best option is going to be to start doing research into your states local laws and how they effect trailer parks. You can also try being honest with the management company, and ask them what your options are. Last ditch effort would be to go to court when they file papers and be honest with the judge and ask him what your options are.
