First, you must look at the lease and/or any other written agreement between you and the prior owner. Unless you have specifically given him/her/it/them the right to come and do a self-help repossession, they have likely violated a number of laws. (This is if the trailer is 'real estate' rather than a 'motor vehicle.' You should hire a lawyer to tell them to return the mobile in exchange for your immediate payment of any arrearage-and that they are open to a lawsuit if they refuse. You could also get it back through the bankruptcy process, but that should only be considered if you already have a pretty heavy burden of debt-AND if you can file your within a strict 90 days from the date they took the mobile.
