If the title is your name you can move the home when necessary, if you leave it the landlord can take action to declare it abandoned .

If you own your home, the landlord may not take it with a simple eviction action, but he may be able to put a lien on the house for the past due rent. You may want to discuss this situation with your attorney to negotiate some type of plan with the landlord to put your mind at ease, or to explain to you what would happen in the case if the landlord did bring an eviction action.

The Mobile Home Landlord Tenant Act does indeed allow a mobile home landlord to assert a lien on the mobile, and I have seldom met an attorney representing a mobile home park who does not immediately move to assert that right.
That said, you have a bankruptcy "homestead" which would defeat that interest if necessary. If things have been so bad you have been unable to pay rent for two years, please go discuss your situation with a bankruptcy attorney.
The process takes at least three weeks, but you can assert your rights at any time before the home is actually sold. Hope this helps. Elizabeth Powell
