The lease for the lot would have to be between the owner of the trailer and the lot owner. If you sell the trailer to the tenants, they would need to sign any new lease. Otherwise, you would need to sign the lease.


Also, you are correct that in a month to month rental arrangement, you must be given a 30 day notice of any rent increase under N.M. Stat Ann s 47-8-37. If the tenant tries to increase the rent without this much notice, it would not be legal.

If the notice is improper, you can refuse to accept the change as being in violation of the law. This would result in the land owner re-stating the 30 day notice.
