what should i do
My mom died 6 year ago. The only thing she had was her land and her manufactured home that she was paying for. She didn’t use the land to purchase the home. I moved in and took up the payments. After about a year I tried to get the loan moved to my name. I didn’t get approved. I moved out 2 years ago. The home was then put up for sale. The company was told that it had to be moved. Now the home is still there. The company no longer had it listed for sale they now don’t have any homes for sale in my state. I have tried to contact them to have them move it but no luck. The house is in good shape. And I would like to move back in if they are not going to move it. Others I have talked to stated that they probably won’t pick it up. What should I do?

oay to get legal ownership in this case: the fact that they have not done anything with it does not deprive the lender or home builder (whomever your mother financed it from) from their rights to it if the financing was not paid off. Therefore, if you more in, while you may be right in that they may not notice or care, you will be breaking and entering and trespassing, and could face criminal prosecution as well as being evicted summarily from it. Don't do this.
