I own a Mobile home & pay a monthly lot fee. When I purchased it they told me Central Air would be included. I purchased it in August of 2017 & still no central air. What can I do? I have spoken with them several times and keep getting the run around.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

I have not prepared any paperwork or filed anything. I do have this is my paperwork that it would be included.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the mobile home located?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The inclusion of central air was part of your sales contract which means that the seller was obligated to install the central air.

If this has still not been done, despite your requests and efforts at communication, then you can consider moving ahead with filing a claim in small claims court.

A judge can enforce fulfillment of the contract, or can order the seller to pay you directly for the cost of installation, as well as for the cost of the window unit you had to install in the interim.

Small claims court is designed to be user friendly, so you can actually move ahead with filing this claim yourself, without necessarily needing to hire an attorney. You can also request that your filing fees and court costs be reimbursed by the other party.

If you go into the clerk of courts office at your local small claims courthouse, they should be able to provide you with the forms you need to file the claim.

I hope that helps!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
