Haha! We had this kind of story. It was annoying but yet unique. Then we moved to Los Angeles and had this renovated by Home Quality Remodeling experts. They took proper care of the house and now we are selling it with a big price. Is anyone up for it?

The bottom floor looks like painted brick or block and not manufactured - The upper level looks like a 1969 trailer that five drunk red-necks used a John Deer Crane to drop on top... Run dont walk there is nothing about this POS that meets any standards - Hell even a good old boy who stared in the movie deliverance would not live in this thing : )

Please I have been in Los Angeles County area since 7 years old and one of the most strict code compliant places in America - Hell if they saw anything remote that looked like this nightmare they would red-tag it and place a lien- In most cases land value is 75% of total in LA so if the buyer got it cheap and raised it then yes he could make money but this hillbilly shack would not fly.

Here is my favorite triple wide T unit. It actually sold and when I appraised it 10 years ago, the owner bought it on contract and still lives there or at least owns it (I just checked.) Her dream palace I suppose. I cannot argue with happy. The back has another unit attached and is shorter than the one in front of it so you cannot see it. The ill painted red unit has a single room and kitchen, the bedrooms are in the back. The interior was a complete mess.

That one is almost certainly a fail unless the state MH administrator has reviewed the plans and signed off on it.

No regs here...

Too bad. That house has obviously been altered/modified (not original) and if you have no State Agency to inspect and approve then the lender needs to get a registered PE to sign off (or not.) This is the fannie quote, others are similar.

Manufactured homes that have an addition or have had a structural modification are eligible under
certain conditions. If the state in which the property is located requires inspection by a state agency
to approve modifications to the property, then the lender is required to confirm that the property has
met the requirement. However, if the state does not have this requirement, then the property must be
inspected by a licensed professional engineer who can certify that the addition or structural changes
were completed in accordance with the HUD Manufactured Home Construction Safety Standards. In
all cases, the satisfactory inspection report must be retained in the mortgage loan file
.

Same as HUD regarding moving the units (if re-sited then not eligible.)
