Grand Forks, ND asked in Landlord - Tenant for North Dakota

Q: Question regarding harassment in mobile home park community.

We live in a mobile home community. Park manager’s brother lives next door. We had an incident last week where he harassed my daughter when she was outside on our deck because we complained about his dog being off leash (against park and city rules/law) to the corporate office. I made a police report and, because we were worried about further action, looked up his record to see what kind of person we are dealing with. Found out he is using an alias to live here and has an extensive record including a felony, domestic assault, and assault against a child. He was supposed to pass a background check to live here but since his sister is the park manager, I’m assuming she used his alias name or just let him pass. Now, we are scared to report this, fear retaliation. What are our options?

A: If the lack of criminal history is a condition of the leasing contract that you relied upon, you could potentially sue the trailer park.
