What to do if I own a mobile home and rent the lot that its on but the property and my home are now condemned because the property owner didn’t have my electric wiring run correctly?

I now have to move the home. Is there anything that I can do about this? Is the owner responsible for moving costs?

From what you have written IF the landlord of the property where you have a lease agreement caused you to have to move because of code violations and you have a significant amount of time left on your lease, then you should make a demand for the costs of the move that you will be incurring to the landlord.

Had the landlord had proper electricity where you rented you would not be required to be doing the move you are now doing.
