Imlay City, MI asked in Real Estate Law for Michigan

Q: Can I move mobile home from park? Seller has no lease. Park says it cant be sold to anyone moving it from the park.

The seller offered it to the park for sale price fist. They declined to buy. Then said he can't sell to anyone that intends to remove it from the park. I'd like to know what Michigan law is. I'd also like to know. Is there anything I can do to protect myself. From the mobile home park. I know they'll do about anything to stop the home being moved. To prevent the loss of revenue

A: Assuming the mobile home is owned by someone other than the park, the owner (now or a new purchaser) can move their personal property wherever they want.

It’s a little like saying ‘I’ll let you buy the car, but you have to rent the parking spot and can’t move it.’

Two things: 1) mobile homes — particularly if they are on rented land — are REALLY bad investments. I would almost never recommend buying one unless you can put it on your own land.

2) this particular mobile home park sounds like one to avoid.

If you haven’t already committed to purchasing I’d recommend running in the other direction ASAP.
