A mobile home can be defined as a movable or portable dwelling that is built upon a chassis, is connected to utilities and is designed without a permanent foundation. Such a dwelling is normally intended for year-round use. Since it is movable, a mobile home is considered to be personally property. A lease of personal property may be governed by the common law of bailments, or by Article 2A of the Uniform Commercial Code if adopted in the applicable jurisdiction. The following form is a simple lease of a mobile home site. This form is a generic example that may be referred to when preparing such a form for your particular state. It is for illustrative purposes only. Local laws should be consulted to determine any specific requirements for such a form in a particular jurisdiction.
