The park may sure check your credit to make sure you are able to pay your monthly fees.

The Mobile Home park that you pay a monthly fee for services such as Water rental of the parking spot will require a credit approval.

You are talking about a manufactured home, and if it is in a manufactured home community, you'll need a credit check.

What if my credit sucks (bankruptcy from divorce) but I have $100,000 cash in hand?

If there is a management company or association to whom monthly fees are owed, you may be required to demonstrate you can pay those fees.This is usually indicated or suggested if words such as 'association approval required' appear on the purchase documents or property description. Along with the abiliy to make the monthly payment, the rules and regs and resident eligibility will be reviewed and acknowledged.
Consult your agent for a specific and accurate respones that applies to your situation.

If you are buying a property all cash, the proof of funds substitutes for the mortgage preapproval. You are your own bank.

Good luck and best,

NO. The people closing the deal will want to see proof of funds.
