I'm hoping you can help. My mom and dad owned a mobile

Good afternoon - I'm hoping you can help. My mom and dad owned a mobile home/modular home and it was paid off and in both of their names. My mom passed away on April 29th of this year - my dad sadly passed away 17 days later. My mom had 8 children to whom only 2 are my dads biologically. The question is who would legally get the mobile home? There wasn't a will or anything in writing, most of us agree that they would have wanted us to sell it and split the money evenly between all 8 kids. However, one sibling thinks it is her's because she was living with them. After researching how to transfer the title, we found information that stated once my mom passed my dad would have been the sole owner of it, but because he passed it would then go to his next in kin - which we believe would be his 2 daughters. Can you please help me and point me in the right direction? We have 1 going against what 7 of us agree is the right thing to do.Thank you!!

I lost the title to a mobile home I was living in and now

I lost the title to a mobile home I was living in and now sold. I went to get a copy at the DMV and they don't have record of it in my name. I bought it from a friend and it is in the name of the people SHE bought it from. [I know the title WAS in my name as the trailer court wouldn't allow me to live there unless it was in my name, but that is besides the point].The people who are listed as the trailer owners seem helpful but are moving at a very slow pace. The people who bought the trailer already have it moved and their trailer court is pushing for the title.What would be the fastest way to get the title into my name so I can sign off and send it to the current owners? Can I have the former owners sign a Quit Claim document or something? I can easily prove that I lived at that trailer for over 4 years, if that makes a difference.

Of Law Talk if possible (if not available by 11:00 PST, then

Doug of Law Talk if possible (if not available by 11:00 PST, then open to anyone)I am about to close on a mobile home in mobile home park in CA. The rental agreement reads that commencement starts July 1. I close later today 17th June and start moving in right away. This "red flagged" me as in 30 years of renting, I have never seen a start date 2 weeks LATER than I am moving in. I have been dealing with assistant who says "we have everybody do this." I have a meeting with manager later today. Just because much of the world is "intellectually constipated" doesn't mean I should be. Signing this document without the date commencing now, doesn't seem like a good idea. my mother who was a real estate agent for more than a decade agrees. what do you think?

I purchased a 2013 repo mobile home through a mortgage

I purchased a 2013 repo mobile home through a mortgage company just under two years ago for $59900. The down was 3000 which was to go towards the principle. All of the down went towards origination fees plus some more added to the loan at 9.75%. I learned later that the owed $1400 in back lot rent and back taxes which I believe we paid. The end balance was $60876. Comparitable homes in year, footage and quality are going for nearly half this. Our lot rent and mortgage is $1100. We can no longer afford this because the oil boom is over and work is slowing. Do we have any recourse. And, do non recourse state laws apply to these type of loans?

We bought land on sound and built a house on it. It is

We bought land on sound and built a house on it. It is restricted, no campers or mobile homes. We later bought property next door and sold part of it and kept part. I can not find where there are any restrictions on this property. We added the part we kept to our other property so it is all listed as one piece of land. If We separate the newer piece that had no restrictions can I put a camper on it?
