mobile home, pay rent on property?

Having found this site, I sure hope I can find some answers here. I live in New Jersey in a mobile Park, 55+.

I own the home but rent the land it sits on. It might be called something other than what I stated above but i think you all understand. My house sits on blocks which sit on a concrete border under and around the home. Here is the tricky question. i was told I am paying rent for that pad.

the pad is now cracking and broken in my back corner and the house is starting to sloop. the skirting is starting to bend outwards. I went to the park manager and he said that it is my respons. I stated that if I moved my home, do I take a cement pad with me? no I don't, you bring in another home and set it on the pad. They just did this a year ago, one block over. People moved their home and another was boughtin and put there on that pad. Has anyone ever run into this? I'm at a loss but feel if the park owners use the pads to place other homes on it, would it not be their pad, therefore responsible for repairs. Ok folks, all replys are sure welcome
Thank you all very much.

I would look at your lease agreement.

If it is your responsibility, can't you adjust the number of blocks that corder sits on?

There is nothing in the lease pertaining to the pad, interesting isn't it?

In my aea, once the health department gets involved, the park owner finds out they do have to take care of things they didn't want to early on. Call your local health department and ask for an inspection if that falls under their department. If not the health department I'm sure they can direct you to the proper official.

Not only must the man who accepts the rent money be responsibility for the pad condition, but he should pay for any repairs of the home on the defective pad .

Threaten to sue for damages, and "mental anguish"..

THE STATE LAW IN NEW JERSEY ABOUT INCREASES IN SECURITY DEPOSITS SAYS A LANDLORD CAN ONLY RAISE YOUR DEPOSIT ONCE A YEAR NO MORE THEN 10% ON CURRENT DEPOSIT. I'VE LIVED IN THIS MOBILE HOME PARK FOR 43 YRS. THIS IS MY SECOND MOBILE HOME HERE. MY CURRENT DEPOSIT IS ONLY $90 HE WANTS TO RAISE IT $364.00 more. IF MY CURRENT DEPOSIT IS $90 10% IS $9 AM I RIGHT?
