Robbie, I would be very wary of the Gentleman who owns 25 of the Mobile Homes.
I would try to purchase (create a contract contingent on you buying the MHP) the Mobile Homes from the Gentleman BEFORE closing on the MHP.
If that Gentleman is just renting out the Mobile Homes, he probably does not have as high a standard for Tenants as you would have.
When we first purchased our one MHP, we had a Gentleman who owned 2 Mobile Homes that he rented out. Our Gentleman said that if there was ever a problem to let him know and he would resolve the problem immediately.
Unfortunately, our Gentleman did not resolve any of the problems that we presented to him.
One of our Gentleman’s Tenants decided that urinating outside was appropriate. We brought it to our Gentleman’s attention that urinating outside was NOT acceptable to us. However, our Gentleman just thought it was funny.
Our business plan is to provide nice and affordable housing. Urinating outside is completely UNacceptable.
We ended up evicting our Gentleman’s Tenants.
Our Gentleman then moved his one MH out of the Park.
He would have moved the other MH out of the Park also but it was too old to be moved. Thus, we ended up purchasing it.
In our experience the Gentleman’s qualifications for placing Tenants in our MHP was that they were breathing. I seriously think that he got most of the Tenants by standing outside a Bail Bondsman’s office.
We wish you the very best!
