Newly bought park owned trailer was inadvertently connected to old septic line instead of sewer line. Sewer line connection was buried when prior trailer was torn down and a new pad put in. Sewer line backed up, froze, angry tenant has to move out for 3 days, calls town. I quickly get plumbers in, replace all lines, have contractor dig up frozen ground, blow out lines spend $4000 and fix.
BUT … zoning officer sent a letter saying new 2011 town ordinance: rental units have to be reinspected every time they are rented. And the floors are soft, the tenant who is now out for blood, told officer she found some mold behind a mirror in the bathroom, the floor registers have gaps so their heat bill is way up and the tenant wants me to reimburse them, and a plumber told the zoning officer he saw some mold under the home.
Note: I doubt they are inspecting every rental in town every time it is rented. Zoning officer hasn’t looked under trailer for mold, and probably doesn’t that floors flex in mobile homes. Temps are near zero. No way we can spray under home now.
What would you do?
