If there is a contract, follow the contract. If not, NEXT!!

Find another home.

Check with the state. The legal title holder should be able to request a duplicate.
Move on to another property if you have no solution.
Cathy Smith Good luck!
Have the people who want the title fill out all the paperwork, pay the fees and just ask the sellers to sign the form.
Check with the state. They should have record.
Cathy Smith Should be no different than getting a duplicate vehicle title. Check with the DMV.
Type the request and just have them sign it, they can handle the 1o seconds to sign if they want to sell. Otherwise, find a new home
In 16 years I've only sold one mobile home and it was a bear to get closed. In NM I had to jump through all kinds of hoops to get the job done.
The issue will be, once you get a duplicate, is the title will not be clear till its paid off and the new lender might not want wait or fund based on that. It could get complicated if the old lender is unwilling to help.
Check with other lenders and see how they would proceed. Or maybe the dmv can help if they kept records of mobile homes in you area. Also check with a mobile home mechanic.
Good Saturday morning Cathy. Joe had a good idea and it might be your only option.
Good morning Cathy. I would go to the motor vehicle department and apply for a lost title.
Wonder why they would not want to cooperate? They must be enjoying the benefits of a high interest rate and don't want to get paid off. There must be some sort of legal remedy, without spending a fortune. Good luck with that, Cathy.
Move on to another home for the Buyer.
Move to a seller willing to cooperate....
Good luck. This sounds very state specific
