As we have discussed previously in the Blog, it is imperative that a mobile home Buyer get approved by the mobile home park prior to closing on their Sarasota Florida mobile home.
The reason for this is because mobile home parks within the Sarasota Florida area require that all park residents are held to the same standards prior to being approved to move into the mobile home park their new home resides in.
This process is called the mobile home park approval process.
Here, the mobile home park will require the would be applicant to fill out a handful of forms to verify their income, identity, credit history and consent be provided so that the mobile home park is able to run a criminal background on the applicant.
Along with these forms most Sarasota Florida mobile home parks will require the Buyer of the mobile home to provide a copy of their state issued photo identification as well as to pay a small fee that will cover the cost of the criminal background report.
These office fees vary but it is reasonable to expect to pay around $50 per park applicant.
Most mobile home park approvals take any where between 3-5 business days to complete, but, in some instances we at The Mobile Home Dealer have seen these park approvals take upwards of 2-3 WEEKS!
Some of the delays are explainable and some are not, our goal in this post is to discuss what can be controlled by the Buyer so that they have the best shot at getting their application in and approved within just a few days.
Make sure you as the Buyer of the mobile home have all of the documents ready and filled out entirely. If the park requests pay stubs or some other type of income verification make sure you have these documents on hand and are ready to get them turned in with your application, failure to provide the documentation of your income will be a sure way to delay the approval process.
Make sure you have the exact application fee for all applicants ready and know how the park will be able to process this payment. Most mobile home parks around the Sarasota Florida area only accept check or money orders and not credit cards or cash.
Make sure all of your written documentation is easily readable. If the application is not legible then expect the park manager to ask you to repeat the process which could add several days to an already lengthy process.
Having all of your documentation ready along with your fee payment and legible documents in hand will help speed up the process quite a bit when looking to gain approval to become a resident of a Sarasota Florida mobile home park.
While there can be additional delays that are out of your control it is always suggested to make sure you have your work done and ready so that the process can go as quickly and smoothly as possible.
