This is sad. However each resident knew from day one of the month to month lease and the potential for the sale of the park.
Not anyone was forced to purchase a home and place it on rented land.

Also, the monthly expense of a new mobile home payment, the monthly lot rent and of course utilities, vehicle costs often exceed the cost of renting a nice townhouse or single family home.
While I have sympathy for these people and the situation it was their choice to rent on a month to month land lease and nobody forced them to do so.

I knew years ago one young family having bought a new mobile home, financed, and lived in Hilltop. After they added the monthly home payment, the monthly lot rent and the required utilites of electric, heating and the rest they could have easily rented a very nice upscale townhouse with small private yard or a single family home! and for less money each month!

People make choices and if one decides to buy a home and place it on rented land on a month to month lease they have only themselves to 'blame' for the situation as they knew from day one they could be required to move their home without any long term notice.

Personally I find most mobile home parks to be rather expensive and not worth the time, bother and money as I rent a very upscale two bedroom, two bath townhouse in SC for less than a moblie home in SC.

To each their own! And also if someone offered me a million bucks an acre I'd sell too!
