I bought a mobile...
I bought a mobile home in a park in April 7th of 2016. The park manager who sold me the mobile home on behalf of the park Owner gave me the bill of sale that says it is a 1974 Rocket with a 6 digit ID Number. I was informed that it would take some time to get the Title to the mobile home, because they were going through the lein process of obtaining the Title through the courts, and that it could take 3-6 months to get it, so it would be a little while before they obtain the title. I said ok, no problem, just let me know when you get it. The park manger contacted me around the first week of December to tell me that she had placed the Title to the mobile home in mail box, that all I needed to do was go down to the DMV and have it switched over in my name. When I went to the mailbox, there was a manila envelope addressed to me that i assumed had the title in it. I never bothered to open it and read what was in it, like I should have. I just filed it away, and planned to have it transferred when I got the funds to do so. It was just one of those things that was out of sight and out of mind and I was in no real hurry to do so. Around the middle of or the beginning of August 2017 (I have pictures with dates), I started to notice a real musty and moldy smell in my mobile home, so I investigated and found that their was a lot of mold behind the walls that had been covered up by the park manager and the maintenance person with paint and caulking, in the bedroom just prior to me purchasing the unit. I had owned and lived in the unit just over a year now, and assume it never was noticeable or bothersome until all the rain we got in the spring and summer of 2017. I bought the unit "AS IS", so im sure their is nothing I can do about that, but think it is very important to point out, to show the type of people we are dealing with here. It was at this time (middle of August 2017) that I started to move alot of things into my storage unit, including all my important papers and files, to make room to rehab the mobile home. Then Hurricane Irma is making a bee line target of Tampa Bay, and was described as nothing less than Nuclear. So I rented Box Truck around the 6th or 7th of September 2017, and fished loading up what was left in the unit I didn't want destroyed as well as my mothers house and evacuated. Upon return post Irma, around 10 days later, I unloaded some things that i would need to comfortably live their while i was rehabbing the unit, I also found that my unit had again suffered some water damage, this time in the back of the unit through a A/C Unit that was inoperable, and my bed, couch, wall, floor and carpet had been damaged from the wind driven rain that had made its way in through the A/C. Around the 20th through the 25th of September i began removing the wet and damaged area of materials from Irma inside the unit. 2-3 weeks later I decided I just wanted to sell the place. I had made a claim through FEMA, and was found eligible for relocation and rent assistance, but was denied any funds to rehab the unit because I could not prove ownership at the time of inspection. I was told I could appeal with in 30 days of notice of denial, but again all my paperwork as far as the tile to the unit goes, was in storage, and I also no longer had a desire to live their.
Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Monday the 23rd of October, I was coming to the Unit to start moving out of the Unit. As I was pulling into the park, Myrtle was leaving the office on her golf cart,so I stopped to talk to her about my plans for the rent, and to let her knowe that I was moving out of the unit, and that I am going to sell it.Her response was okay that is fine as long as I dont have to deal with the selling of it, because now that all the winter people are back I will not have time, just as long as you get my back rent paid up, there shouldnt be an issue. She also explanied that anyone I sell it to will have to pass a background check, if she feels they need to be, that she is a good judge of charcter. Ultimately she has the ability to again block my sell. So with that Information from her, and her terms, I began moving all my stuff out. I advertised my place for sale on Saturday the 28th 2017, and on Sunday the 29th I had a potential buyer, Harold who was intrested in buying it for his father. 5 minutes before he got their on Sunday around 1pm, Mike comes again bangin on the door asking me what I am doing, I said well Mike I am moving out and sellinng the unit. He said well what happened to A/C unit that was in the bedrrom window by the front screened door? even though that shouldnt be important him, I answered him, and told him I had temporaily removed it, till I sell the unit. His response to me was, "Well your going to just have to remove the unit when you move and take it out of here, then just proceeds to walk away. I opened the door And said what are you talking about, I have already talked with Myrtle about all of this, and we have made an agrrement, so what are you talking about? He says, it needs to much work. I then said like what work do you think it needs Mike? He would not answer that, even though I asked him several times in a row. He bagan to scream at me while calling me a "Peice of shit", and stating that I was 3 months behind on rent and that we dont want you or the unit in here, that you are going to have to remove it. I said to him, you know what, you have done the same thing to John, the retired school teacher that i tried to buy his unit from him, and you told him the same thing, that he had to remove it, and I couldnt buy it and keep it their. I responded and told him that you are just trying to screw me like you screwed them. He said, and I quote "Your damn right I am screwing you, and I am damn good at it." The neighbor across the street that bought a mobile, and has only lived their maybe 45 days, heard all this while drinking her coffee, and almost choked on it when she heard him, not only admit that he was screwing me, but that he is damn good at it. My mother who was also on the phone with me also heard this.
