Snickfish is a Title Management company focused in Mobile Home Real Estate, Mechanic, and Storage Facility Markets.

If you’ve spent any time around the mobile home park niche then you’ve surely familiar with abandoned mobile homes and the challenges that are sometimes associated with them. And if you currently own a mobile home park, then you might even have a few abandoned mobile homes in your park now and have no clue how to handle them.  Case in point, if you intend to enter into this niche, then you will need to get familiar with the abandoned title process of the state in which your park resides.

Residents abandon mobile homes for a variety of reasons: eviction, loss of job and can’t afford to move, death, skipping town, mobile home is dilapidated and they can’t afford to fix it, and the list goes on and on.

The goal is to obtain the legal ownership of that home so that you can either renovate it and resell or legally remove it from your property. And that is sometimes easier said than done. It’s challenging to stay current with State laws and regulatory mandates governing abandoned property. Mobile Home Park owners and Property Management companies are constantly battling the State, local courts, and the DMV bureaucracy. What works today might not work tomorrow.

Snickfish just might be the service that will help you solve your abandoned home challenges.
