I bought a home with a Bill of Sale. Seller moves it to my park as part of the deal.
So it gets on my park and my city wants the label number to tax it.
But, turns out the home has no label or serial numbers anywhere to be found. So I ask the guy to give me some information and he tells me, listen you agreed to buy it with a Bill of Sale. I said yes, but that has nothing to do with identification of the home. Someone had to pay taxes on the home during 2017. The city wants the numbers so it can tax it of course.
So seller says he has no more info, he has discussed it with his attorney, and I need to leave him alone. I bought it as is.
City wants the numbers to tax it or I need to remove it.
And without numbers, I can’t really hire a mover that wants to properly get a permit.
If I send in an affidavit that there are no numbers, and here is my bill of sale, the guy is probably going to get in serious trouble for selling it and for the fact that he didn’t get a permit to move it.
Any ideas? I am trying to do the right thing here and not get myself into a civil matter.
