Move in deposit on a mobile home

Postby Carolyn12 » Fri May 27, 2016 8:19 am

I lost my job and is being evicted because I have no income to pay my bill. My eviction date is Monday June 22, 2016. I have nowhere to go, no transportation. There's this nice lady willing to rent one of her mobile homes to me in Sneads, Florida (Jackson County). Who can I contact for assistance with paying the move in deposits/ first month’s rent and electrical deposits?

Hi I have a question! My husband and I bought a Mobil home and then put it under our name. When I went to talk to the manager she told me that there was a process then I told her that the previous owners didn't say this to me. So I did as she told me and fill out the application and pay the application fee, cover the deposit and pay the rent it took them a month to accept the application then they said that I need it to make the contract so I did then. When I did the contract I ask them that if the money order I pay for the rent was for the month that I move in and she said yes that it was all done.
So when I moved in the mobile home I checked the mail and there was another bill for that month's deposit but I discarded because I had talked to the manager and she said that it was all done and the bill wasn't under my name. Now this month I got my next rent bill and I was expecting a normal rent bill but it turns out they are now charging me for the last month and this month and the late fees. I want to know if that month that the mobile home was vacant is still my responsibility?

Mobile homes do not usually have much assistance available to them. Agencies normally help with apartments, more permanent home placement too. So the aid tends to be more limited, But still apply for rental deposit help , as the most that can happen is someone says no. Also, those programs will not normally help pay for late fees either; so call another charity for that.
