("HFI"), by and through its counsel Nadine L. Scibek, and hereby complains as follows: 1. HFI, a Vermont non-profit corporation with a principal place of business in Montpelier, County of Washington, State of Vermont, is the record owner of a mobile home park known as the Mountain View Court Mobile Home Park (the "Park") located in the Town of Bennington, Vermont. The Park is managed by the Vermont State Housing Authority. 2. Jack L. Harrington ("Harrington") is the record owner of a certain mobile home described as a 1989 Single Wide, Model #7956A856, 72', bearing serial No. 068826222 (the "Mobile Home"), located on Lot #6, Mountain View Court Mobile Home Park, 129 Morgan Street in Bennington, Vermont. See attached Vermont Mobile Home Uniform Bill of Sale. 3. Harrington leased a lot in the Park for his mobile home from HFI pursuant to a written lease. HFI is holding a security deposit of $332.00. See attached Lease. 4. Harrington is deceased. Harrington's date of death is July 13, 2021. No probate estate for Harrington has been opened per the Vermont Superior Court, Bennington Probate Division. See attached New Hampshire Certificate of Death. 5. The mobile home has been abandoned and is empty. The last known legal resident of the mobile home was Harrington. 6. After Harrington's passing, his daughter Tia Harrington contacted Thomas Young, Property Manager for HFI regarding the Mobile Home. Tia Harrington indicated that no one in the family was going to open a Probate Estate and that they were walking away from the Mobile Home. HFI's counsel spoke with Tia Harrington in late October of 2021 and confirmed that Tia Harrington and her brother are the heirs, they do not want to go through Probate Court and they are walking away from the Mobile Home. The Death Certificate provided to HFI by Tia Harrington states that Harrington was married at the time of his death. HFI was able to obtain Harrington's wife's name and telephone number from a resident at the Park and was informed that she resides in the Bennington area. Harrington's wife did not reside in the Mobile Home and had a separate residence at the time of Harrington's death. HFI's counsel spoke with Harrington's wife, Sandra Harrington on December 10, 2021. Sandra Harrington stated that she had never resided in the mobile home, that she does not want the mobile home and that is abandoning her interest in it. See attached email. 7. The following security interests, mortgages, liens and encumbrances appear of record with respect to the mobile home: a. Harrington is in arrears on obligations to pay property taxes to the Town of Bennington, Vermont in the aggregate amount of $838.53, plus interest and penalties.
