One of the owners was still living in the home when it was sold. She is claiming that because she had signed the title several months if not a cpl of years before the actual sell that it was illegal for the remaining owner to sell the home.
We are being told be lawyers here that because they were in the home when he bought it that we have to evict them. That he can't simply remove their belongings & change locks. They won't even give him a key.
they have no lease with the mobile home park and were in fact evicted by the mobile home park but were not physically removed
that's what I thought and quite frankly she is stupid when it comes to most things but before I pay a lawyer and go to court I want to be sure she is wrong.
Do we just file it with the court or do we have to do to court to defend it. Can they dispute it and how long does it take?
Problem is he makes minimum wage and can't afford a lawyer to file the papers & go to court
she has a boyfriend living there with her who plays these games and stays as long as he can without paying bills, he has never been on the lease or had a legal right to be there
legal aid advised him that they don't "consult" in these matters when he tried to talk to them about it before
are there forms to fill out that we can file or do they have to be drawn up by a lawyer. I know if I file the wrong form it can be thrown out. I just need this over before they evict the whole trailer
They are saying not small claims but tenant issue because they are squatters
I assume just search online for a phone number for them?
ok will try that, I need something done quickly is the problem and the lawyer I contacted said evict them but they were never tenants of his and the mobile home park already cancelled their lease. My son never invited them in, in fact they have kept him locked out.
If small claims maybe we can get legal aid to help.
any idea how long it would take to remove them if trespassing?
will probably need to do evict then, in iowa we can do a 3 day evict & follow up with court order within 2 wks but thanks for the advice, most likely will just have to hire lawyer for him due to needing something immediate
yeah either way it's amazing how the law protects the person who is wrong
ok, thanks, bye
nice try but the info you gave me was not valid or correct for my state, if I had followed it I would be going against the laws of my state
