New Smyrna Beach, FL asked in Landlord - Tenant, Contracts and Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: Can you be evicted if your landlord was given the title to your mobile home 1 year ago? We left it 1 year ago

My husband and I owned a Mobile home in a trailer park a year ago. We rented the land; but owned the mobile home. After not being able to sell the mobile home. We turned the title with a letter of discontinued of our month to month lease. We had both a certified copy of the mobile home title signed and notarized, along with the letter to discontinued our lease. We sent the letter with title certified with a signature and the only copies of the keys. They did sign for it and that day was witnesses in the mobile home. The letter of intent to discontinue our lease was also marked as is. That no legal action could be taken against us. As for them taking possession of the trailer, they agreed to the terms. 1 year later, I have a certified letter from them from a lawyer not in our county. How can we be evicted or even sued if they had possession of the trailer for a year now. I did keep all my documents that were sent; Along with our new lease somewhere else.

Thank you so much.

A: Likely a formality to take possession. But you may want to contact opposing counsel to enter into a consent Judgment for possession only without money damages. You may want to retain a lawyer to ensure there is no money judgment against you.
