A: Hi,

I presume you own the mobile home and the owner of the lot is terminating the lease. Many mobile home parks may attempt to pass the costs of removing the mobile home on to the tenant, even after the end of the lease if the home is not resold or relocated by the owner. Such a provision may be included in your lease. However, I suggest consulting a local attorney familiar with local residential landlord/tenant laws.
