we bought a mobile on land on sep 2014, in Tehama County, CA, and were told that the serial number on the permitted mobile, doesn't match the number registered with the county. we thought it was a misprint, as the mobile has been permitted since 1982. recently, we have decided to sell the property, and when in escrow
, we had to strip skirting around the mobile, to find the accurate serial, and according to the title company & housing
dep. last activity on the title was in 1981, and the legal owners of the mobile home
Both R\O and L\O were contacted by the title company, with no replies.
we were told by the housing department that the only way to get the title now, is though
petitioning abandonment to the court, after getting a tax clearance from Merced county, CA, were the mobile was last registered under the right serial.
Tehama county has records of the mobile being on the land since 1982, and has a photo on file that shows mobile with addition dated 1989 at the latest. property and mobile are taxed and up to date on taxes.
we wrote to Merced County Tax office, asking how to get the tax clearance, and got no reply. we need help with how to get the Tax clearance, and how to proceed and get the title for the mobile home. (1973 suncrest, 2\1, with little value).
