Can you put up a mobile home on your property?
That will depend entirely on the zoning ordinances in your
sub-division and community. The permit office of the local
governing body should be able to tell you with a phone call what
requirements have to be met to do so.
For example, there may be lenient provisions for temporary
installations, or you may be required to have an approved sewage
disposal system (city or septic), there may be limitations on
whether an occupied dwelling is even permitted on the property
(e.g., industrial zone), and if so, where on the property it may be
positioned (setbacks), and so forth.
Ans 2 - Assuming the local authority approves the
installation, there are still many expensive decisions to make. You
will need a water supply (possibly even a well) an electricity
supply and almost certainly a septic tank and field. Those three
items alone can easily exceed $40,000-
