Q: getting sued for something I don’t have the title to anymore

I inherited a trailer that I didn’t want. I found someone that wanted it so I gave them the title and keys. A month later the person that owned the lot it was in called me and said he didn’t want that person to live on his property. Another months went buy and the guy I gave the trailer to was bullied into leaving and handing over the title to the guy who owns the lot space. Now the person that owns the lot it sits on wants to sue me for back rent cause he wants me to take the title back. Plus I already gave it away months ago. So who is responsible for the rent?

A: If you don’t have a written lease with the land owner you probably have a good defense. You should consult with an attorney to be sure.
