Q: Can a previous owner legally stop me from moving my house off of their property if its paid for in full?

I have a mobile home I bought from them and part of the contract states I have to have it moved before the end of feb 2020. They are now messaging family members stating they are trying now to do everything they can to keep me from relocating my house.

A: If the contract requires you to move your mobile home before the end of February 2020 why are you here today, some 62 days early? Rather than get upset about "your family members" receiving messages from the landlord that appear onerous to them, why not view these messages as being POSITIVE efforts to convince you NOT to relocate the mobile home? This sounds to me like a really GREAT opportunity for you to negotiate a lower rent for the property.
