Half of all moorages are moorages in which the floating home owner owns the home but has a lease to rent the slip to which the home is moored.   This means that your potential landlord also has a landlord.  Moorage owners can evict your landlord for nonpayment of rent, committing certain crimes or for breaking the moorage rules.  For example, if you sign a lease with a floating home owner who is several months behind on their rent, the moorage owners could already be in the process of evicting the floating home owner.  This would result in the termination of your lease with the evicted floating home owner.  DO contact the moorage manager to verify that your landlord is in good standing and in no current danger of loosing their lease at the moorage.
