Houston, TX asked in Real Estate Law for Texas

Q: I just purchased a mobile home and moved it onto my mother's 1 acre piece of land that she owns and that is paid off.

We signed an agreement saying that she allowed this to happen. Well we have since been in an argument and now she is threatening me if I don't move it off the property. She is also a cosigner on the loan to my home. What are my rights

A: Your rights are what is in the agreement your Mom-in-law signed. I would like to see it, but you are in good shape if it has a long time period. If it is silent, she can evict you after 1 year, if it is on rural property.

If you have paid her for an indefinite period of time you are in good shape. You really need to see a lawyer next time you want to secure your home.

Good Luck!
