Small park owner here. I have a wanna be landlord who has acquired two mobile homes in my park. He will not sign a lease and has not paid a dime. I have not allowed anyone else to lease out a home, and I’ve also always advertised no foreclosures, evictions, or repossessions. (He had a house foreclosed on last year and has various other active small claims things going on against him from looking up court records.) No one lives in these trailers, they don’t have power, and they need repairs.
My normal eviction attorney doesn’t know trailers. The two guys he referred me to don’t have time. I have a 4th attorney a friend recommended who usually does like DUIs or something, but for $500 he says he has some ideas–I suspect to gain ownership of the trailers. This 4th attorney was good at bluffing and intimidating someone for my friend but that isn’t likely to work with my problem.
I just handed a 5 day notice for nonpayment, but I don’t feel like this is really an eviction per se. Could this be some sort of storage lien for title? I just want quick with minimum expense, the trailers are POS and could be gone for all I care. I’m in Champaign County, IL.
