Unless the written lease agreement for the lot where a mobile home is to be placed states any restrictions as to who can rent the lot, the owner of the lot cannot legally restrict who can rent the mobile home from its owner. The written agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of the obligations owed to the tenant by the landlord and vice versa in the absence of conflicting state law.

From a practical standpoint, it is best that the owner of the mobile home advise the lot's owner about any new tenant for the mobile home.

Good question.
