Cheyenne Kon…, Home Buyer in Milledgeville, GA

I am curious how someone can list a property as being a two home dwelling when they do not own both dwellings.

The property could be a duplex or semi-detached home or just a house that has 2 separate living quarters.

Since these are "mobile homes" there will be a title for the mobile homes and a deed for the property. The property can be sold and the owner of the mobile homes may or may not have the right to stay on the property, this would be determined by the rental or lease agreement for the space the each of the mobile homes occupy.
As for conveying the ownership in the mobile homes, the Title is the legal document that shows ownership, along with any other written agreements regarding the conveying of the title. Simply put if you own one of the units, and have the title or can get a copy of the title, the land owner can not sell the mobile home, unless you have entered into an agreement with the land owner in some form that would allow him to take ownership, or the land owner has asked you to remove the home and you have not (in most cases this would require a court order).

Thank you Jack, that is exactly what I thought. The land owner owns the doublewide but not the singlewide. They did not even ask the people in the singlewide to move it or if they can purchase the singelwide from them. So pretty much as long as the title is not in the seller's name, it will take a court order to get removal of the singlewide. Also, they unknowingly had the singlewide appraised and added to their property value without the singlewide owner's persmission.

This is not a duplex, it is a doublewide and a singlewide on 25 acres.

There are lots of properties like that around me.

They're duplexes, with each side owned separately. The structure is a 2-home dwelling, but the owner is selling his side.
