@DanS , as per your post:
- "9 homes of the 43 occupied hang over the property line"
- "Will we have trouble legally or financing the park?"
Yes, you will have trouble.
This MHP has 9 Mobile Homes on someone else's property...and NOT the property that you are planning on buying.
Moving a Mobile Home several feet or down the road will be close to the same price.
The Mobile Home Mover will have to:
- Remove Stairs
- Remove Skirting
- Remove Utilities
- Put on wheels and move Mobile Home
- Re-do probably the majority of the Utilities (Electricity Pole will probably need to move or wire re-done)
- Re-attach Utilities
- Re-install Stairs
- Re-install Utilities
Moving 6 Mobile Homes will be pricey.
There is then the issue of 3 Mobile Homes that have no where to go. What will you do with these Homes?
Yes, the neighbor COULD sell you a portion of their property, but do they want to? What will happen when they find out that there are 9 Mobile Homes on their property?
Franke has indicated that he has had the issue before. If I remember correctly, Franke ended up gaining legal possession of the land in issue.
However, what if you cannot gain legal possession of the land in issue? You will be left with a big and expensive mess.
We wish you the very best!
