Because they want to. That shouldn't matter at this point if your wanting to buy the house. Reasons will be disclosed during the 17 days grace period after your offer is accepted. Get with an agent and write it up.... more
You really should start with the park manager of the park/communities you are interested in. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rent/lease park/community.
Be wary of any manufactured home built before June 15, 1976 as they are "PRE HUD" homes and will be very difficult if not impossible to finance. Additionally many if not most PRE HUD homes were built using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldehyde and asbestos.
But before you purchase any manufactured home you should have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape.
Be sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped, torn or lying on the ground. Have the inspector look for drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, expansive (clay soil), rusted and deteriorating piers and dry rotted or decomposing wood pads supporting the piers.
Most importantly make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing (ERBS) installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:

I'm afraid the bank's rights supercede yours. Having an offer on a short sale does not guarantee lender acceptance. Banks are very overwhelmed, and if it doesn't get assigned to a negotiator in time, and the loss mitigation department didn't stall the short sale, its possible for the property to be foreclosed on.
I have access to foreclosure information in California, so if you'd like me to verify the status, don't hesitate to contact me.
