Is Titled Owner the Occupant?
Our business model for managing MHPs requires all mobile homes or RVs to be legally titled in the name of their occupants. For this reason we do not allow rentals in our communities. In our experience, when the occupant is the legal owner of the home they are more likely to take care of their investment, keep their lot clean and be good citizens in the park.
Success here is that for every home or RV in our park we have a copy of a current title, registration or other documentation uploaded and stored in Rent Manager and the name of the tenant and name on the title or registration are one and the same.
The park manager will check the title for each home scheduled on their monthly report in Rent Manager and then update the information.
"Checking" could include obtaining a copy of the title/registration from the tenant, calling the agency that issues titles or visiting the agency's website.
For homes where there is a discrepancy and the titled owner and tenant name do not match, the "Needs Resolution" field in Rent Manager will be set to "Yes" and the "Titled Owner is Tenant" field to "No."
Follow-up actions will be initiated by the manager to resolve the discrepancies by calling the titling agency, enlisting the support of the offsite-manager or issuing a violation notice to the tenant.
The manager will use the "Next Check Date" field to set a timely reminder for follow-up activity on all discrepancies.
