Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
It may take me a some time to run down all your issues. However, there is some information that would be helpful to me in addressing your problem. Do you know if the fence was installed by the prior owner or the mobile home park manager? Was the fence installed with the approval of the mobile park manager? Did the renter of the adjacent lot object to the installation of the fence at the time it was installed?
What were you told about the fence at the time you purchased the home and rented the lot? Does your rental agreement have a precise description of the lot you are renting? How do you know that the manager's description of where the boundary is is accurate?
Since you are just a renter, your position would be relocation of the fence is not your responsibility. The fence was clearly installed with the approval of the manager and the other lot owner. It is not like you own the land and put up a fence that encroaches. The fence was put up on land owned by the mobile park with the approval of the land owner. If it is not located properly that is not your problem as you rented the lot on an as is basis. I would tell the mobile park owner if it needs to be moved he is responsible for moving it because it was put up with his permission and apparently without objection by the other tenant. Neither of them can impose on you the obligation to move the fence when that is how the lot came. Also, you rented a lot that was fenced. If they are going to move the fence, they must leave you with an enclosed area as that is how you rented the lot.
The key is that you rented the lot as is. No one said that you were responsible for making sure it was within the lot boundaries since the fence was installed long before you rented the lot.
