Arlington, TX asked in Real Estate Law and Landlord - Tenant for Oklahoma

Q: Son gifted mobile home pd in full no owed fees. MHP owner won't release lien trying to make him sign 5 yr contract.

No fees are owed. Previous tenant (gifter) stayed the 5 years. My son has home title in his name on the way in the mail. Owner states she will not release lien until he has also stayed for another 5 years. Tag office states if we have lien release information they will issue new title. My son has not entered contract with the owner as of yet. She has stated verbally she is concerned about his age. (22)

A: Since your son hasn't executed a contract with the park owner, he would need to look at the contract signed between the person he was gifted the home from and the property owner and see what the conditions on the home are. Take the contract to an attorney for help.
