ALWAYS have a home inspection before buying.
My realtor talked me out of it and it was a big mistake, and I though she was on my side.

Realtors are on the side of the commission. Never rely on anything they tell you without verifying it independently, not even the realtor who supposedly represents you.

Mobile homes are built in a factory, and then transported to the site where they will be installed. Once delivered, the home is anchored to the site. Despite their name, the homes are not very mobile as dismantling them and moving them can be difficult and expensive.

Mobile homes are also known as manufactured homes. The term manufactured home is also sometimes used to describe modular homes. The regulation of the modular home industry differs significantly from the regulation of mobile homes.

Despite the popularity of mobile homes, owners face a wide range of problems. Consumers can run into trouble with the financing, the set-up, and the quality of the construction of mobile homes. Many have problems obtaining service under warranty. Mobile home owners who rent the land on which the home is placed confront additional challenges.

Despite federal construction and safety standards, consumers have experienced a number of problems with the quality of mobile homes. Common problems include leaking or sagging roofs and ceilings; improperly installed windows and doors; defects in the heating, infestation, cooling, electrical or plumbing systems; improperly installed appliances; and damaged flooring. Many of these problems are difficult and expensive to repair. Home owners typically look to the dealer or manufacturer to make such repairs.

Mobile homeowners have many legal tools to challenge the various practices outlined above. Defects in mobile homes or irregularities in the financing usually give rise to a variety of claims under the Uniform Commercial Code, Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, state consumer protection statutes, and state and federal credit statutes.

State unfair and deceptive acts and practices (UDAP) laws usually apply to mobile home sales. However, some UDAP statutes do not apply to real estate transactions, and would not apply to the sale of land on which a mobile home is to be placed or to the sale of the mobile home itself if the state law classifies it as realty. A UDAP statute offers the advantage of providing a remedy for oral or written misrepresentations about the mobile home, even if the misrepresentations do not create warranties under the UCC. The statutes typically offer treble damages and attorneys fees.
