                   Think About It!
The buyer of a mobile home park wants to upgrade the park to increase
  the income above what the seller is receiving. The seller has a very
  casual management style in the handling of the park. The mobile home
  nearest the entrance is a dilapidated, very old trailer with who knows
  how many cats running around the unit. The owner claims to own no
  animals.
The buyer puts an amendment into the escrow that the run down unit
  must be removed prior to close of escrow. The seller claims that the
  resident pays all rent and fees on time, complies with the park rules
  and that the seller cannot terminate the lease for the unit due to the
  Mobile Home Residency Law.
Can the buyer or the seller give the tenant a Notice of Termination?
     Think About It! (Answer)
No.
However, if someone buys the unit, the owner
 can require that the unit be moved from the
 park because it is significantly run-down and
 the purpose is to upgrade the park.
