Q: Can my property manager make me install skirting on my deck even when it costs hundreds of dollars

I own the mobile home but not the lot it sits on. The new property manager is demanding I install skirting on my deck or I will be penalized. Is this legal? What if I can't afford it?

A: The park where you have your trailer has rules and regulations. I'm sure when you first started staying there, you signed some kind of agreement or lease. That document will tell you all the rules and requirements that you must abide. Take a look and see what it says about the need for a skirt on the home. If you don't have a copy of the rules, the property manager is required to give you a copy.

Good luck!
