@Propboy40 , as per your post:
- “My father owns three parks and in one of his parks he had a TOH burn down.
The residents were ESL Hispanic and had a very nice place but uninsured.
My father paid for the removal and cleanup with no backlash to the owners.
Furthermore he has been looking through Craigslist for a replacement home to buy for this family that he could either rent to them or sell back on zero down terms.
It is an isolated community and they really don’t have anywhere to go as they work.”
I send my highest praise to your Father.
That is very honorable that your Father “…paid for the removal and cleanup of the TOH with no backlash to the owners”.
It is also very honorable that your Father “…has been looking through Craigslist for a replacement home to buy for this family that he could either rent to them or sell back on zero down terms”.
Not everyone has the wherewithall to be able to buy a Mobile Home, move the Mobile Home and setup a Mobile Home.
Thus, for your Father to be spending his time and money to help others is very admirable.
Below are a couple of reasons why a Mobile Home could not be moved from a particular Mobile Home Park:
1.) Age Of Mobile Home: In some South Carolina counties (you indicated that you were in the State of Washington) the government will not allow you to move Mobile Homes that were built in 1976 or older.
2.) Mobile Home Was Sold To Tenant @ Reduced Cost By MHP: The MHP selected to sell the Mobile Home to a Tenant at a reduced cost with the clause that the Tenant had to keep the Mobile Home in the MHP for a particular time frame.
@Propboy40, I hope that your Father is able to find a Mobile Home to help these Tenants.
In South Carolina we were able to buy a couple of Mobile Homes from Individuals who lived in them while they built their new home. Once their new home was built…the love and price for the Mobile Home quickly went down in value.
We wish you, your Father and your Father’s Tenant the very best!
