The BEST way is to not buy the home in the first place. Manufactured homes, particularly those in parks where you don't own the land it is placed upon, are notoriously bad investments.

The "Patron Act"? As far as I know, there is no such thing. What are you trying to do? Force the sale of land owned jointly or compel the sale of land in some other way? Without specific facts, it really isn't possible to answer your question.

It sounds like you already had an attorney that you fired/didn't pay? Without seeing ALL the paperwork and doing the research on this long case, it is impossible to provide any real guidance.
