I need some sound legal advice on a mobile home in Texas

Hello. I need some sound legal advice on a mobile home in Texas please. We purchased for 75k, still owe 50k. We want to move on into a traditional home but have been utterly unable to sell this mobile for what we owe on it. Value has depreciated massively much like a car. We are currently on private property which is not ours, belongs to family. We have been so desperate to get out of this that we are contemplating "walking away" from it.We know this will leave horrible marks on our credit ...so we want to make a home purchase first and then stop paying the mobile and walk away. We need to know what to expect if we did this. Besides the bad credit, what else can happen? Can we be sued by our lender or would this just be a repossession like a car and that's the end of the story?Could the mobile lender place a lien on our new home or garnish wages? If Texas allows just a repossession then I don't see why we shouldn't do this. But if we can be sued, I don't want to do that either. What are Texas laws regarding a defaulted mobile home loan? Please help!Thank you

We have a mobile home in a mobile community. Our water and

We have a mobile home in a mobile community. Our water and sewer have always been included in the lot rent and now the owner wants to install a smart meter inside our mobile home and we pay our own water and sewer. He has said we do not have a choice, we either allow it or move out. He has someone that does not have a license and is not bonded. These meters are owned by him so if we would move we would have to have the meters removed and returned to him. Can he legally do this. I am only one of many here that do not want these installed in our trailer. He refuses to install them under the trailer at the main water entry to the trailer.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the mobile home?Customer: WisconsinJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The trailer was manufactured in 1989JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: What do you mean by filed or reported? He just today dropped off his agreement paper and expects us to sign them right now since he wants to start installing these July 1st

We financed the sale of a mobile home sold through an escrow

We financed the sale of a mobile home sold through an escrow company. My husband is the legal owner on the title. The home we believe is PERSONAL property as it is in a mobile home park. The two registered owners who held the home in joint tenancy have both passed away. The family has stopped making payments as of Dec. and have indicated they are walking away. The home is vacant and has been for some time. One beneficiary has been cooperative and has agreed to sign off on the title and other documents required to get title back. The other beneficiary is not cooperating- for no particular reason. How do we reposess? Home is located in San Bernardino Co., CA.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: California. And this is not real estate. The mobile home is personal property.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: What do you mean?JA: What confuses you?Customer: I believe the note was recorded. We have not filed anything after the default. The only paperwork that may have been filed was a TAX CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE, but the paralegal won't release it to us!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have the paperwork signed by one beneficiary, but not the other who isn't cooperating.

TJ. I reviewed my lease VERY carefully after you answered my

Hello TJ. I reviewed my lease VERY carefully after you answered my question. What I found was verbiage that was exactly this. under conduct. The use, possession, manufacture or distribution of illegal substances, as defined in EITHER federal or state law, either on or in the vicinity of the premises is strictly prohibited. Since under federal law. Marijuana is illegal under the controlled substance act 21 U.S.C (81) and no difference is made between medical and recreational use and it is a schedule 1 drug and as such illegal. Would the people below us that smoke it every night and cause our apartment to reek? be in fact, in violation of the lease and as such the office is required to take action?
