    How do I get title for a mobile home that was sold but never transferred?
    I manage mobile home park in Iowa. I sold a fixer upper mobile home to a gentleman, he paid for it and was given a bill of sale and I signed off on the title and he was suppose to go straight to the courthouse and have the title transferred into his name.
    He never had it transferred. He paid for one months lot rent when he purchased the mobile home and never paid anymore lot rent and I was never able to get a hold of him
    so I filed for eviction and won the eviction in court which he never showed up for. Meanwhile no one can locate him and I would like to get another title for the mobile home which is still in the park and no money has been paid on what is owed which is more than the trailer is worth. I have someone who is interested in buying the mobile home how do I go about getting a new title for it? can I claim it as abandoned? The title is still in the parks name. can I get a duplicate title for it?

    If he never recorded the transfer of title, then just file with your state DMV for a duplicate title. In the unlikely event he comes around wanting his trailer just show him a copy of the judgement for non-payment of rent for the space and tell him to get the hell off of your property.
