Evictions in Manufactured-Home Communities
I’m the property manager for a manufactured-home community in which tenants rent the lots and place their own manufactured homes on them. One tenant is two months behind on his rent. How do I start the process to evict him for nonpayment of rent? (Updated April 14, 2017)
The eviction process for nonpayment of rent in a manufactured-home community in which the tenant owns the home and rents the lot is slightly different than the eviction process in which the tenant is renting the home.
Section 94.206 of the Texas Property Code requires you to give the tenant written notice that the tenant is behind on rent. If the tenant doesn’t pay the delinquent payment in full before the 10th day after the date he receives the notice, you may terminate his lease and evict the tenant.
