I feel your pain. I was told a lot of different things about disposing of the home. The manager of the lot told us just to leave it and quit paying the rent. They could try to go after my mom for rent, but she had nothing and it wouldn’t be worth their time. The owners usually find it is easier for them just to pay someone to tear it apart and get it out of there.
We decdied that we would pay someone to tear it apart and move it rather than leave the owner to do that. We were approached my the maintenence man of the park. He heard that we were going to get rid of the trailer and asked if he could have it. We knew we would need record of a sale so we sold it to him for $100. The mobile may have been worth maybe $5000, but the $475 a month we were paying for the lot each month was worth just getting rid of it quickly.
I think the cost was going to be around $2000 to have it torn down and moved out.
I hope this helps.
