FLORIDA, I bought a mobile home in my name and was conned by

FLORIDA, I bought a mobile home in my name and was conned by an alcoholic sociopath to marry him two months later. He convinced me after two years he was tired and needed to change his life. Almost a year later he doesn't work and verbally mistreats me. I have to come up with $750 lot fees while he lays around drunk. He refuses to get out and my credit is in jeopardy. I am 66 years old thinking I had a new lease on life but this wasn't what I thought. I want to put it up for sale but he is drunk much of the time and stays naked most of the time so nobody wants to show it.

I live in Iowa and my county assessor will not remove the

I live in Iowa and my county assessor will not remove the mobile home designation from my home. That means that the buyers that want to buy my home can't get a conventional loan. There is nothing mobile about my home it is all under 1 roof and there is more sq feet that is stick built than was ever part of the mobile home. I have read that each state has a definition of what is considered a mobile home. How would I find what Iowa considers a mobile home and is there a way to legally get the assuror to change the designation?

I own a single-wide mobile home but rent lot space in a

I own a single-wide mobile home but rent lot space in a small mobile home park. There was a major storm on 7/9/16 and 2 branches (approximately 10 feet by 18 inches) came through my roof into my bedroom and another smaller branch came through the roof of my bathroom. These were from an oak tree next to my mobile home. The park owner says he is not responsible for damages because he doesn't own my home but does own the land and trees. Can you tell me who is responsible for these damages? Thank you.

Mobile home purchases. Gulf port Mississippi. I live in

Mobile home purchases. Gulf port Mississippi.I live in Alabama and I have had a purchase agreement with Coastal Homes of Gulf Port Mississippi.The original managers provided a bank approval with a total sell price of 46000. We provided a 1000$ security deposit while we alert attempting to sell out house.More time passed and we went by to visit and speak with management regarding the sell of our house and that we were still working on the sell of our house. Upon our visit management was not there and we were told we could go see the mobile home however the roof had started to leak and there may be issues with it. If we wanted our money back we could have it or look at another home.We left disappointed and exchanged emails asking if they were going to do anything for us regarding their lack of taking care of the home while in their care or would lower the price so that we could have a roof installed later. Management there advised that they could not lower the price because it would put them upside down on the loan. I did not respond.A few weeks passed and the sell of our home occurred. I returned to coastal homes to speak with management to expedite the the setting up of the home and to advise them that I would settle at the 46000 total price and deal with the roof myself.I was met by new management who explained that the manager I was dealing with had quit and he had taken over the sells. He as familiar with our deal however said he thought we were going to pass on this mobile home. I asked if that were the case you should have called me and returned my security deposits. He only responded that he had put a roof on the trailer and it costs some 5000$. I explained I understand it needed a roof however I would've had done it myself and the agreed purchase price shown on the first bank approval was $46000plus.I offered to pay the closing fees in person on that day and the manager did not want to accept any more money because he was going to have to speak to his manager/ owner.Several emails and phone call exchanges have occurred and I have been speaking with the banker directly providing the formation for the loan, again. Information he advised he failed to recieve from Coastal Homes which had been provided for financial approval. They had however approved a bank loan for $46000plus. Which I would think is the total purchase price agreed upon.I spoke to the banker directly on Friday July 8, 2016. He said he was willing to go forward with the loan but believed the mobile home dealer did not want to go through with it until the sell of my home was completed. The banker made statements about having spoken with the mobile home dealer and being advised that he ( mobile home dealer) would be risking a $6000 in delivery and set up fees if the sell of my home fell through at the end. I advised the banker to send me a copy of the loan approval so that I would know which items he has in case future issues developed.Upon inspection of the report I noticed the total sells price had increased to 51000 plus without my knowledge or consent. An increase of $5000.An increase in which I believe the mobile home dealer had the banker change to compensate for the roof he installed, without my consent or knowledge, again. I expect them to say that they need to charge me for delivery and set up in the amount of about $5000 as opposed to saying it is for the roof that leaked while in their care????I did have the mobile home secured with a $1000 down payment, as is, with prior management and still do. I didnot consent or have knowledge of the roof being installed. I did not consent or mhave knowledge of the price increase to 51000plus from 46000plus.I do not wish to pay to extra $5000 and would like to know if the actions taken by the mobile home dealer and banker are legal? If not what are my options for legal action against one or both???

We have a 1974 mobile home in Az. in a mobile home park.

We have a 1974 mobile home in Az. in a mobile home park. There is a 15x40 room addition attached (welded) built by a former tenant and approved by the park owner. My wife has had 7 operations and unable to travel and we want to abandon the mobile(probably unsafe to move) and/or sell the unit. Owner says we can do neither. If we sell, he will not approve the new renters and force them to remove unit. If we abandon unit he says we have to pay all costs to have the mobile and the room addition demolished. How can we rid ourselves of this without costs involved?
