Quit Claim on mobile home

Posted on: 23rd Jan, 2007 03:27 pm
I am a joint owner on an old mobile home that was occupied by my mom, now deceased. She was on disability when the home was purchased and placed on private property which is owned by another family member. We were told that the home had to be moved 6 months after her death. She was not on disability at the time of her death but on Social Security.
I want to quit claim this mobile home to the property owner but want to know if this action will be legal and can the owner refuse ownership?
Thank you,
Welcome Mck,

It's not illegal to quit claim the mobile home in your situation. The owner may not refuse ownership. This is because he owns the and on which the mobile home is fixed. He can either stay on the property or sell it and gain from the proceeds.

What kind of ownership did you have on the property?

Adonis, thank you so much for your reply. I will go ahead with the quit claim deed.

Ava, I was to be the sole owner of the property but met with family trouble and everything was changed. Oh well :?

Thanks to everyone! Great site!

"can I quit claim the mobile home if it is not on permanent foundation?"

Hi Forrester,

Welcome to Mortgagefit discussion board.

If the mobile home is not on permanent foundation then it is not considered as real property and thus a quit claim deed cannot be used in such situation.

Quit claim can only be used to transfer ownership of real property.

Do let me know if you have any other questions.
