MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. -- The right of first refusal enforced by mobile home parks has frustrated a number of mobile home owners in West Michigan.

The FOX 17 Problem Solvers have continued to report on this issue.

A ruling has been issued in a Muskegon County courtroom for a case FOX 17 first reported on in April. The owner of a mobile home was prevented from selling the home because the owner of the mobile home park claimed she had to accept the park's low-ball offer.

Mobile home parks are concerned about having empty lots if outside buyers intend to pull the properties from their parks. The park attorney said property values may decrease. He contends that right of first refusal is enforceable and a signature from the tenant isn't required.
