'Unilateral' provisions are not per-se improper, but you're 'gut' that this is rather unfair isn't wrong. It is an argument against buying a condo or entering into ANY 'contract of adhesion' but it isn't 'illegal'.
Someone gave me a cash deposit to purchase my property. No contract was signed and no receipt was given. A month later he called me to cancel the deal. I told him I can not give him the deposit back. He started harassing my phone and threatening me. What should I do? Do I make a police report? Do I... Read more »
If you state that there was no written contract, then you do not have a valid purchase agreement. Real estate transactions, especially those dealing with a purchase, require that the contract be in writing pursuant to the Statute of Frauds. My suggestion is that you return the deposit, because...Read more »

The BEST way is to not buy the home in the first place. Manufactured homes, particularly those in parks where you don't own the land it is placed upon, are notoriously bad investments.

The "Patron Act"? As far as I know, there is no such thing. What are you trying to do? Force the sale of land owned jointly or compel the sale of land in some other way? Without specific facts, it really isn't possible to answer your question.

It appears as if you're looking for legal representation. This forum is for answering general questions rather than specifics, and the NATURE of the easement matters a great deal so no 'general answer' is going to get you what you want. As for case law, again, you need to hire an...Read more »
Generally not. Most lease provisions will prohibit using security deposits for the last month's rent. Security deposits are used to offset any damages or other fees owed to the landlord upon the expiration of the lease. However, if you and your landlord agree otherwise, then you should do so.
