I have a bureaucratic nightmare on my hands, and wanted to see if anyone has had a similar problem.
Back in June, we bought 2 nice repoe’d homes one 5 years and one 10 years old, from a local credit union. We moved them to our park, installed them, and even found 2 worthy tenants. Seemed like a slam dunk, since we didn’t pay much for the homes or the moving ($7K for single, $10 for double, $7500 to move both)
Here is the problem. Homes were manufactured by Four Seasons Housing out of Indiana. Four Seasons is now defunct, some assets were bought by Clayton, but not all. We cannot get the installation manuals anywhere, and the local housing inspector refuses to give us a certificate of occupancy without them. We tried calling local retailers, but they didn’t have any because the home are 5-10 years old.
Where could I possibly find a copy of these manuals? I’ve tried online, the State building department, parks in the region, and have run into walls on all ends. I’m hoping I haven’t wasted $25K due to a lack of a $100 manual.
Any input will be greatly appreciated, and I’m even willing to put a $100 bounty on the manuals. It would be the best $100 I’ve ever spent if I can get these units up and running.
