Sorry if I flaired this wrong, legal seemed most fitting as I’m not sure on the legality of my question.
So, I bought a tied down manufactured home with my wife. We are on ~7 acres of land in a rural area w/o an HOA. We closed a little over a year ago (Jan 2020). When we bought the house it was a bit of a rush to get out of our apartment because of the animals we had and we couldn’t afford much while also getting some land. We went through CHFA as well to help with the cost. So we started out in a not great situation to land in a not great house.
The problem I’m facing is that I’m somewhat low-income (28k /yr), and the house isn’t in great shape. It appraised for what we were trying to buy it for, but as we’ve been in the house we’ve realized it leaks in areas, the windows are shit, the holes in parts of the floor or are threatening to fall out, etc. It’d be a bit of a headache to remodel but we like the area and the land.
I was thinking it might be easier to buy a used/new manufactured home and replace it with the one we have. But I can’t find any information as to what permits I would need or if it’s even legal if I’m still paying on this current house.
