…mistakes that dumb questions. The only really dumb questions were the one you were afraid to ask and lost some money on as a result of not asking.
This is a forum for beginners too. I hope noone will be afraid to ask about any and every thing that concerns them. I learned nearly everything I know by asking questions. For those who have heard this a hundred times close your ears: A wise man learns from others mistakes and a fool scarcely by his own. How many of us can invent the wheel? Copying the knowlege of others is much smarter that learning everything the hard way. The more good questions you ask the smarter you become. You asked some very good questions.
Have you asked the taxing authority for the mailing addresses where tax bills are being sent? They can’t just address them to a lot number.
Eviction depends on local law. Generally you would have to evict them, if the park manager doesn’t beat you to it. Hint hint.

I suppose that taxing agencies must hold tax sales for deliquent personal property taxes on mobile homes. I’ve never come accross this situation in 30 years in this business. I’ve never even heard it mentioned on this board. Even I can learn something from this. Next time I’m in the DOH office I will ask about it. Maybe we’ve all been missing something good. Thanks for the tip. Sometimes the teacher learns more than the student.
