Legal Answers
Q. all of my property was stolen by the manager of Flint-Stor-All, 3502 Gorey Ave Flint, MI 48506. while i was in Montana
A: Burglary— no. Perhaps a ‘civil conversion’ or improper lien attachment but without seeing the lease and notice it is hard to say for sure. ... Bring your paperwork to a Genessee County attorney to review ASAP to determine what if anything you can do and how much it will cost to pursue.

Q. Is there anything, in Michigan, a renter has to sign that states specifically that they’re off of a lease?
A: As noted, this depends entirely on the lease. Was it a lease for a defined term and that term has expired? There needs to be nothing more in writing, and if you've turned in the keys and moved out, that is that, so to speak. If you are attempting to terminate EARLY, then yes, the landlord also needs to sign some sort of release If you are ending a month to month lease that is at the discretion of either party, a unilateral notice is enough If you are unsure what applies, you need to consult with a local landlord/tenant attorney to review YOUR situation and provide you actual legal advice. -- This answer is offered for informational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice or create an attorney/client relationship.

Q. Trailer park sold me a mobile home then told me they dont have a title for it what do I do to get the title
A: So in essence they sold you something they didn't own .... Under what authority would YOU have to apply for a lost title? That sounds like something the HEIRS of the previous owner could do, and if the park took an assignment from those heirs something IT might be able to do, but the 'rationale' for applying for a lost title is growing VERY thin by the time it gets to you. In an ideal world, you could demand a refund from the park but assuming you want to live there, that probably isn't your best course of action. I'd suggest you consult with a local attorney to review ALL the facts and determine what course of action would work best. There are multiple avenues if someone has died and the title is lost, but as to which one is the most cost-effective and least troublesome for YOU , you need to get real legal advice rather than something anonymous over the internet!
