I work for a mobile home property management company. We pay the property tax on the land and the homes that are occupied as rental units. The residents in our communities are responsible for the homes property taxes (we pay the taxes on the land.) Depending upon the state in which you live either you will pay the property tax directly to city/county/school district etc or the property management will pay your taxes for you and add to your site rent. It is important to remember that not paying your property tax doesn't hurt the company, in fact the county can in fact put a lien on your home and seize it. As for maintaining your property, look at this way, now a-days most suburban & urban communities are now covenant controlled. Also, I ask you to realize that these communities can either be a "white trash" community or a great community to move through all phases of life. Our community managers deal with a lot if issues, complaints, district requirements (we have one community that has had so many restrictions placed on it because the rich community next door wants our land,) and a host of many things you probably don't realize....not to mention the pressure they get from our office...wow! I hope you living community is a pleasurable and enjoyable environment. Take care and thank your community manager for enforcing their rules! You probably live in a great area!
