Hi everyone! I'm am thinking of purchasing a 1/4 acre lot in Sussex County, near Frankford. It is about 6 miles to the Delaware beaches, in a community with no Homeowner's Association.

The goal is to pay on the land for awhile, then, closer to retirement (about 15 years) build a house on site.

In the meantime, I'd like to purchase a manufactured (mobile) home and put it on the site. I tried to find info on Sussex County codes, but the link from the government website doesn't work.

Does anyone have any experience with this? There are other mobiles in the neighborhood. I'd like to purchase a newer used one, and pay to have it transported there.

Thanks for any advice!!!

You should call the county zoning office. Alot of areas have stopped allowing mobiles to be placed on land. The existing ones are allowed to stay but if removed for any reason a new one can not be put on the same property. I am more familiar with the Kent area than Sussex.
