Ontario, CA asked in Real Estate Law for California

Q: These people are stealing my home, and furnishings, from me! What can I do?

I recently purchased a, fully furnished, mobile home, in the Roadrunner Mobile Home Park, and turned in my application for space rental, along with a money order for their, required, background check. While waiting for their decision, they went in to my home, and removed all furnishings, barred me from my home, and put a lien on my mobile home. I paid $13,000.00, for the home, and I have the title, and all related paperwork. I have made several attempts to contact, management, who was completely belligerent, and the owner, who never responded. I was completely willing to work with them, to resolve this, as I have put everything, I had, to get this. Seeing they are not, even willing to communicate, with me, while robbing me of my money, and my home, has me facing homelessness, and losing, everything, that I own, as a result. Please, help!

A: Did you get a bill of sale when you purchased the mobile home so you can prove title?

If so, I would go to the local police station and report a breaking and entering and grand theft complaint. This is not a civil dispute at this point, it is a criminal matter. I would also go to the local district attorney's office and ask them to initiate a breaking and entering and grand theft charge against them. You must have copies of your paperwork and the names of the people involved. You should write down the whole story before you go so you can leave them something in writing they can use to develop the case.

You can sue them for damages later. The first order of business is to get your property and control of the home back in your hands.
