You have certain rights under the Michigan Mobile Home Commission Act. Specifically, MCL 125.2327 prohibits sellers of mobile homes to engage in any practice that would be deceitful in connection with the sale of such home.

I would advise you talk with an attorney about your rights in connection with this transaction. Certainly if it were me advising, I would contact the seller, demand they remedy the situation or return your deposit.
