If you were evicted from your mobile home after a court action, you will not have the right to take the mobile home from the park. Contact the mobile home park owner to try to make arrangements if you want to take the mobile home from the park. If you cannot agree, the mobile home park owner may have the right to sell your mobile home to recover costs.
If you leave your mobile home not as a result of an eviction, the park owner can ask the court to declare your mobile home “abandoned.” The park owner can ask for an order to sell your mobile home.
Your mobile home is considered abandoned when:
- a “reasonable person” would think no one is living in the mobile home AND
- the lot rent is at least 30 days late AND
- the park owner has tried to contact you but has been unable to reach you.
Vermont law spells out the steps that need to happen when a park owner wants to sell an abandoned mobile home. Follow this link to learn more.
