I’m not familiar with the laws in Texas. Since you have already given the seller some money and he has given you the title, you may want to transfer it into your name in order to protect your interests. Look at the title to see if the seller’s name has to be notarized. Or, talk to the people at the state office where titles are registered. They will be able to give you more information about state requirements.
You could then tell the seller that you will have to deduct the lot rent that is due and pay him the balance.
It’s important to maintain a good rapport with the park manager. Otherwise, they can give you a lot of grief.
