Daneespegard, my Husband and I own 2 MHPs.
We are both the Owners and the Managers of the MHPs.
The MHPs are located:
1.) 1.5 Hours From Our Home
2.) 30 Minutes From Our Home
Residents in both MHPs mail their payments to us (two separate mailing addresses).
From the one MHP we get 50% Money Orders and 50% Personal Checks.
From the other MHP we get 80% Money Orders, 10% Personal Checks and 10% Cash.
We send out Monthly Bills to all the Residents in the MHPs which include ‘Payment Responsibilities’ indicating when Late Fees start and when the Eviction Process begins.
The Late Fees are based on the Post Mark Date of the Envelope.
If the Residents are near the ‘Late Fee’ Date frames, they need to go into the United States Postal Service Office and physically get the Post Mark Date stamped on their envelope.
If the Rent has not arrived in the mail (we take the Eviction Date and add the turn around time for the USPS), we just start the Eviction Process.
We start the Eviction Process for the MHP located 1.5 Hours from our home through the USPS.
We hear all kinds of excuses.
However, we continue on with the Eviction Process until ALL money has arrived and has cleared the Bank.
We wish you the very best!
