I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

The Mobile Home Park Rights Act does not give the owner of a mobile home park the right to enter a mobile home on the premises for any reason. If the owner is claiming a right to enter mobile homes at will, report him to the Attorney General's Office. He's trespassing any time he enters home your without your consent. The park owner isn't a landlord, so he doesn't have any need to go in and do repairs or maintenance on the mobile home. There's no other reason for him to be in there other than an actual emergency. Your right to privacy trumps his right to enforce park rules. You also have a right to quiet enjoyment of your home, and you can't have that if the owner might wander in at any time, whether you're home or not.

Whether you choose to move into this property or not, report him. He's violating the rights of everyone living there.
