I own a park model mobile home in a campround at the shore

I own a park model mobile home in a campround at the shore where I pay rent for the land. I now want to sell and was told I can either use one company which the campground approves to list my place or sell it for sale by owner. I decided to use the company they told me because I have three children and it is difficult to come down for showings. When I went to list it, the manager told me he would not take my listing at the price I was asking. I wanted to list for $70,000. He said he would only take the listing if I sold for $35000. My place is worth much more than this and I didn't think the price for something I own could be dictated by a listing agent. Now I'm in a pickle because my only other option is for sale by owne . Is all of this legal?

I live in a mobile home park, which is gated, we pay rent to

I live in a mobile home park, which is gated, we pay rent to owner etc. We have a clubhouse with pool and indoor shower etc. After my swim I shower and remove my wet suit and put on a sundress . I have requested in writing, in person and I offered to pay for a handlebar in the shower. I get a negative answer each time. Is't there a handicap accesible law that makes it unsafe to shower without a bar to hang onto. I am 80 years old and wold love to use the pool and shower.Why won't they put a handlebar in the shower?????

I am a tenant in a trailer park in Springfield, OR. Water is

I am a tenant in a trailer park in Springfield, OR. Water is explicitly provided by the landlord in my rental contract with them. However they are playing games with the other tenants and myself wherein they are saying we are not allowed to wash our cars, have outdoor pools, etc. (I even got a letter about watering my outdoor plants once.)Now, I have been searching all afternoon trying to figure out what "cleaver" and "safe" place I put my copy of the rental agreement so it wouldn't get lost - only to discover I have no idea where that is.At any rate, my RV was getting so blasted filthy and dingy looking I couldn't take it any more so I washed it this afternoon. Given that several of the neighbors were watching and shaking their heads I just know one of them is going to "tattle" on me to the landlord and this is going to result in another letter and/or threat of extra water charges.I am so fed up with this game. So my question is this: Can the landlord really sign a rental contract saying they provide water and then tell me I can't use it in so many various ways? This seems a bit shady to me, but I know landlords can get away with a lot in the fine print.Also, if I continue to fail to find my copy of the rental contract, is the landlord obligated to provide me with another copy, or can they just use my carelessness to their advantage and say "well, guess you'll just have to take our word on things..?"Thanks in advance for any guidance.

I own title and deed to my land. A general worker/contractor

I own title and deed to my land. A general worker/contractor moved a mobile home on my property. He was paid up front, but then did not perform the work. He left and moved away 2 years ago. I took over possession of the mobile home as he never fought the small claims debt and not only had 120 passed, but it had been well over the 1 year required in Alabama. Now he is coming back two years later saying he owns the mobile home. But, no it was left (forfeited and abandoned) on my land.

Father died July 20. Title on the mobile home is joint

Father died July 20. Title on the mobile home is joint tenancy with right of survivorship with me. I thought that means I become sole owner after death and home is not part of probate (if probate even occurs, likely insolvent due to medical bills). HCD wants me to send in death cert and "transfer without probate" form HCD475.2, which has statements that don't pertain (no will, less than 40 days have elapsed, may be creditors against his estate). I am in process of selling unit (filled out paperwork and exchanged funds/keys yesterday) as I cannot afford monthly space rent of unit but was cosigner on his space rent. Do not know yet if any previous tax liens...if so would be under $1,000 likely. Hope to pay off with any proceeds.

We own a mobile home and we were going to sell but the

We own a mobile home and we were going to sell but the ridiculous amount of work they want done on a mobile home we have greatly improved is too extensive for our budget. The one item that bothers me is they want us to remove an air conditioner that has been there for many many years before us but they are telling us there is no permit on file because they have a new management. Even when we told them we decided not to sell because of all of this.. they said we must remove it but isn't there a clause or law of grandfathering? Can they make us remove it even though we have decided not to sell? They are telling us we still have to fix everything because they inspected our property.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Calif.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.. we just got the phone call this morningJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: We were going to sell the mobile to my mom. They then came out and inspected it and gave us a huge report although the mobile has been improved in every area they gave us a report on. Before this new management we improved for example the stairs on the outside. The management at that time gave us a form to fill out with drawings and measurements which we did and they approved.. now they have included those stairs in what needs to be fixed. They are telling us they can do all of this because it is New Management so we said fine we won't sell it.. basically we will just let my mom move in. They said okay and now this morning they called and said we still need to fix it because they did an inspection and saw it and yet it's been visible the whole time we feel they're just picking on us now we're trying to get money from the permits they are requiring. We have been great tenants people love that we fixed our mobile up and there are a lot more mobiles that are worse that are in violation. Right now we are not selling but they still want us to fix it up.
