House on land label in county as land only

1 Reply

I was offered a house that is visually there, however in the county records it is labeled as vacant land.

Was wondering how is that even possible?

Probably a manufactured home place there without permits or not attached to the land. Remember manufactured homes, mobile homes, etc. Can be considered personal property (just like a car).  They get registered/sold/bought through the DMV. 

So that is a possible scenario as to why there is a house there that is not registered with the county.

I would investigate before moving on with it. Does it have power, water, I am assuming it has some form of septic tank. 

Good luck!
