For those of you who are buying /or/ thinking about buying a MHP from an Estate where someone has passed away make sure that you receive the following BEFORE you close on the MHP:
1.) Death Certificate: Official Death Certificate Of Previous Owner Issued From The State
2.) Certificate Of Appointment / Personal Representative Form: Official Certificate Of Appointment / Personal Representative Form Issued From The Local Government
Since there are some Mom & Pop MHPs that are now in Estates and are for sale, we wanted to provide our experience.
Last year my Husband and I purchased a MHP from an Estate where the Previous Owners (Mom & Pop) had passed away.
AFTER closing on the MHP we found that some of the MHP business required that we have both the:
- Death Certificates - Official Documents
- Certificate Of Appointments - Official Documents
Both of the above Official Documents practically took an act of congress for us to obtain. We could freely obtain the needed information from websites, but in order to perform our business we need the Official Documents.
Thus, if I had to do the MHP Closing all over again, I would ask for these Official Documents BEFORE closing.
We wish you the very best.
