Thank you,

If the tenant has not paid rent you may bring an eviction proceeding for non-payment. Before commencing the proceeding you must make a rent demand. The demand can be made orally or in writing. If it is written if must be served on the tenant at least 3 days before the eviction proceeding is commenced. The best thing you can do is to hire an experienced landlord attorney in the town or surrounding area where the mobile home is located. The cost of the attorney will be much less than the amount of rent you are losing.
