Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hi. I lived in a mobile home park and was evicted dec 6 2018. On dec 17 2018, I was in a horrific accident leaving me with a severe brain injury. I was in hospital and then respite care until sept 1 2019. The park sold my trailer. (I did receive a letter). I don’t even know how much they got for it. Am I entitled to the proceeds from the sale?
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: No
JA: Where is the mobile home located?
Customer: thamesville ontario
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: the eviction itself wasn’t proper. At the tribunal, my partner wasn’t allowed to testify, or bring up his mental health issues. We then obtained a paralegal who assured us we wouldn’t have to leave our home. He didn’t follow through with any of his promises. Subsequently, we had a no trespassing order against us. Then my accident. Where both myself and my partner were injured. I had an emergency splenectomy, a pin I my hip, broken pelvis two spots, cuts in my liver, kidney and bladder, collapsed lungs, crushed ribs, two holes in my aorta, dislocated shoulder, separated neck, two skull fractures and a severe brain injury. Dr didn’t think I would make it through the night. Partner suffered broken ribs, ankle, fractured vertebrae, broken nose, teeth broken out, and a brain aneurism. To say the least, we weren’t able to pursue any actions towards the mobile home park. The deed was in the house.

Debra, Expert

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

When is the last time you heard from the mobile home park?

Customer
I think March 2019 is when I received the letter
Customer
I don't think they put a notice in the paper though

Debra, Expert

As you have not heard from them since they sold the home you should be sending them a letter demanding full documentation of all of the costs involved so that you can see if you are owed money.

They are not entitled to keep any monies beyond what they were owed.

If they don't agree then your best next step would be to retain a lawyer to send them a letter threatening a lawsuit. If they still don't comply you would then sue them. The limitation period for suing is two years so you are not too late.

What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.

You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.

The number is:

1-***-***-****

Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.

Here's the link to their website:

http://www.lexpert.ca/directory/find-lawyers-or-law-firms/

Does that help as a starting point?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
