Here’s something I’ve thought about that I wonder why more park owner’s don’t do: Why not have a clause in the lot lease granting a security interest (lien) in the mobile home. Have them sign all necessary state paperwork so this lien can be placed on the home, even if you only do it after they are out and owe money or abandon the home. Granted, this will only work on free-and-clear mh’s, but a repo would be a heck of a lot faster than the abandoned title process - especially in states with a non-judicial repossession statute.
In my pet park I see them going through the abandoned process on probably 1 home a month on average. That’s a lot of headache and time spent. I would think this way would be much simpler and have it filed away in the back of my mind for when I have a park(s) of my own. I’d like to hear other’s thoughts.
