Certain Michigan mobile home owners have been suffering from issues relating to the sale of their homes. Recently, unscrupulous mobile home parks have been trying to make an investment property out of their homes on the cheap. The problem is that many of the mobile homeowners are unsophisticated when it comes to the market-value of their property or the legal processes involved in selling their homes. In one recent case, a homeowner was sued by a mobile home park after she did not accept its offer to buy her home for $3,500.
In this case, a mobile home owner sold her residence and was later sued by her mobile home park for $25,000. The park says the woman violated the park's right of first refusal, which assumes that the park has the legal right to try and outbid any interested buyers. According to the owners of the property, however, they never agreed to such arrangements.
