Asked in Landlord - Tenant for Florida

Q: Mobile home

Hello. I bought mobile home in trailer park in Florida 19 years ago. I had lease for one year which was automaticly renewed each year. About year ago my landlord wanted sale the property and gave me 2 months to get finances. I asked him for more time but I got no answer and after 2 months was the land sold to another person. The new owner evicted me in 2 or 3 months. I lost my whole property. I became literally homeless. They didn't give me even chance to sell my mobile home for fair price. Is this ok? Do I talk to real person now?

A: You said you bought mobile home 19 years ago, then the landlord wanted the sell the property. What is the property? The land? The landlord want you to get finance? for what? to purchase the land? How come you became homeless if the land is sold?

it seems that you are not very clear as to what type of transaction your entered with the "landlord". Is it a lease to buy deal? You should consult an attorney with a copy of your contract to know what your real rights are.
