I own a park in Wa and have done several evictions. John Woodring and Assoc. out of Olympia is the MHCW attorney. Join the association and you can call him to answer questions. I 've used John 3 times. Figure about a thousand per eviction. Wa is a state where it’s not easy for a park owner to do their own evictions…I believe most park owners here go with an attorney. ( Oregon is great…you can do an eviction there without an attorney.)
When I bought my park in 2007 I had 15 POH. I’ve sold every one but one and will sell that one once it’s cleaned up. Screen the buyers well. Make the total monthly( space rent and payment ) competitive with apts in your area. The shorter the length of the contract the more likely they’ll stick and complete it. Good luck
P.S. After an eviction or two…I’ll bet your rent collections get better.
