You posted your message in the wrong place. It belongs in New York State or in Other States/Areas. There are very few mobile homes in New York City, and they're all in New York City's one and only mobile home park.
 
Did your husband have a will? If so, did he leave the mobile home and the land to you? Even if he had a will, some states require a certain percentage of the estate, with a minimum dollar amount, to be given to the surviving spouse.
 
What payments are you making to your in-laws? Have you consulted a lawyer? Have you called the police and the postal inspector?
