If Iown a mobile home and I’m being evicted off the lot, if they are only giving me10 days, is there any motionI can file to ask for more time?

I am desperately trying to not end up on the street. I paid $5,000 for my trailer and they’re only offering me $500 for it. I was less than $1,000 behind. I can’t move or sell it in 10 days. I need a little more time to sell it so that I can find a new home for me and my family. I don’t know what to do because I’m not that familiar with the laws on this matter.

In most states the time period to end a lease by way of a termination notice is thirty (30) days unless there is an order of eviction setting forth a shorter time period. From what you have written I cannot tell if there is an order that you have to have the trailer off the lot you are writing about or not.

I suggest that you have a face to face meeting with the landlord about the best way to resolve the situation to give you time to move the trailer. Any agreement should be in writing. I suggest that you consult with a landlord tenant attorney further about the situation that you are in.

Good luck.
