Question: We have an RV tenant in our park who we would like to evict to bring in a mobile home on the space. The RV tenant is month-to-month and has lived here for several years. Can we issue a no-cause eviction notice to clear up the space?
Every landlord wants to avoid disputes with tenants. Disputes can lead to litigation -- and litigation is expensive. There are a few simple things that landlords can do to reduce their risk of a dispute with tenants.
Question: Most of the tenants in our RV park are good folks and good tenants. However, inevitably there are always a few "bad apples" who make everyone miserable. What are the laws on "no cause" evictions?
Question: I own a decent-sized RV park with quite a few long-term tenants living there, but with also a few seasonal guests and overnighters. I have one tenant in particular who is constantly abrasive towards other tenants and guests (for example, walking thru the park and telling people that they need to fix their awnings, stack their firewood in a certain way, etc.). He has no qualms about interjecting himself in other people's conversations even when his input is clearly unwanted. I have already lost several tenants and others have complained. Before this person ruins my good park, how can I get rid of him quickly?
Question: We are wondering whether to use monthly or weekly rental agreements with RV tenants? We prefer the stability of longer-term tenants, but sometimes get a few bad apples who don't work out and then find ourselves stuck with them until we can give a no-cause eviction notice. Any recommendations?
Question: We have a couple of situations with unauthorized RV occupants in our park. The first is an RV tenant who has moved in a person who we consider to be a nuisance -- she has been yelling at other residents. The second situation is a nice lady who has moved in a boyfriend -- he seems okay but still hasn't been approved. In both cases, they have ignored our requests to fill out a rental application. We use MHCO Form 80 (RV Space Rental Agreement). Is there anything in that agreement that allows us to do something about these situations?

Question: A mobile home park has a separate RV section. One long-time RV resident recently moved out because of illness, but left behind his RV, which is old and in poor condition. Does the park need to file an eviction action to clear out the space for a new tenant? What can the park do with the RV itself?
