I'm getting close to completing my due diligence without yet paying for formal inspections/surveys/etc. Talked to the building dept today who gave me an earful, just like you said they would Frank.
He told me the MHP is in a flood zone and that the park was grandfathered, but new homes could not be moved into the property. I probably shouldn't have, but I told him it was perfectly legal to bring in new homes and that I was more concerned about permits and COs for the park and homes currently there. He responded, "Well, you're going to make a great new neighbor aren't you?".
Not a good move on my part, but I suppose it will come to a head at some point. This park is so small it makes me just want to walk away from it. I really didn't want to start out in a town this way. Suggestions in dealing with this guy? Or just turn it over to a lawyer once I grab the park?
