Try this word problem on for size:
PM calls me (Gosh I love that part!!!):
An elderly tenant has vacated her SW in the park - she has been placed in a care facility. PM describes the MH as in good condition, a cute place. The MH is free and clear, title in tenant’s name, no taxes due and rent is paid, except for the current month. The care facility administrator says she is in no condition to make a decision regarding sale (turnover?) of the home, but the local mental health authorities are getting involved to help with this issue.
PM sees the future of the home as being signed over to my business. It may have to go through the hoops of turnover to the State (who doesn’t want it), and/or landlord’s lien to the Park, but the PM wants me to get it, so we all want to stay away from that LL public auction thing.
What can I do to grease the skids here? Anything? Or is it best to just lie low and what happens, happens? BTW, I am going over to pick my way in (with PM permission) today to see the place.
