In my notes lack of insurance is reason for default and I’d issue a notice immediately. When I send a default notice I also send a “Surrender of Premises and General Release” for them to sign with a note that says something like "To prevent legal action and a bad report to the credit bureau, please sign this and be out of the home by the first (fifteenth, whatever).
As far as payments, my personal opinion, would be that since the default is not for lack of payment it has no bearing on the issue (I’d keep the money but continue with the eviction). Understand that this is not a legal opinion, see an attorney ASAP. Maybe get a reference from the park manager on who they use because he’ll be familiar with laws concerning mobile homes.
The fact that you have insurance is irrelevant and no one else’s business.
All the best, Lyal
