  1. A mobile home is titled to an owner of record. The ownership of said trailer remains in the name of to whomever holds said title. It makes NO difference where the trailer has sat for any period of time.

    I gather that there is an estate involved. The trailer is NOT part of any estate, as long as your mother holds the title to same.


  2. i know with furnature if u leave it at someones house longer than 6 mnths after u moved but a relative occupies the house where u left the furnature. .. it legally becomes theres and nolonger your own. the court in that case would ask was there a binding agreement or were u paying the average storage cost to the relative to keep it there. if not u r out of luck. Not sure how it works with mobile homes


  3. it was abandon and probably not worth anything.
    she can put a lien on it for storage fees, if there is a title, or in you mom’s name for the unpaid rent.
    She can get a court order to remove it for failure to pay rent. get a attorney


  4. If your mom’s name is on the title then it is still hers. That does not change until she sells it.

    How can the aunt leave it to the sister if it never belonged to her?

    It kind of sounds like your mom never actually had the title to this trailer. If that is the case then she has no claim to it at all.

    This all depends on who’s name is on the title.
