Contact or visit the county tax assessor's office immediately. The critical issue is who is responsible to pay the property taxes now. If the property taxes are not paid on time, the county or local town / city has the legal authority to file a lien against the property. The tax assessor's office can legally go after the owner's family and try to find out who is responsible for paying the property taxes. The worst thing to happen is to have property taxes pile up not paid. NY has the highest property taxes in the U.S. so if they are not paid on time, the amounts can be thousands of dollars.

Since you are related, start contacting a real estate attorney immediately. In addition to unpaid taxes, the neighbors have a right to complain to their town officials about lack of maintenance on the home. Example: with today's huge snowstorm if somebody falls while walking on the sidewalk to the house, that person can sue because the sidewalk was not plowed. Another example is during the spring, if the outside of the home is not well maintained, the neighbors will complain to local authorities.

Your Realtor is going to be your number 1 resource. He/she should be able to go preview homes for you and even take videos of the houses you're interested in. I upload videos to YouTube all the time for my out of state (and out of country) clients. But it's better if you can factor in a few house hunting trips so you can see the homes in person. It's not wise to buy a home sight unseen.

I also suggest to buyers that they use Google maps to look at homes via their "street view" feature and also the satellite image. You can get a better feel for the neighborhood, and any other things nearby that you may like or not like, such as shopping centers, power plants, etc.

If you live in an area that has frequent blackouts and brownouts... it might. Otherwise, probably not.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
The truth is realtors won't take a mobile home listing because a mobile home is legally considered personal property. It's not real estate. So it has nothing to do with being in a community or park. Mobile or manufactured homes are considered real estate IF the owner has title and owns the land underneath the home. If the owner pays rent or the land underneath the mobile home is leased, then the mobile home is legally personal property.

So if your mobile home fits the definition of personal property, you need to advertise on Craigslist, Instagram and as many non real estate websites as possible. Try Postlets, Google, Yahoo homes, etc.

Billy,
I think that they probably had an obligation to get the tank read just prior to closing. If you haven't filled it since then, or you have and know the approximate balance at the time of closing, you might want to keep them as a friend and offer something. You never know when you might need their help with some other aspect of the home that they would know about since they lived in it before.
Your contract however may specify what happens in this event. I'd start there and see exactly what the language says. Since you agreed to it up front, they could make a claim. Your defense may be that you weren't given proper or reliable notice, however a mediator or judge may still feel you owe something.
Work this out on your own if possible.
