Unsurprisingly, mobile homes are by definition mobile, while in terms of living area furnishings they resemble an apartment. Unlike conventional apartments, mobile homes do not have a solid foundation, but are built on a solid platform that can be moved at will.
With all the advantages in mind, legal aspects must be taken into account when purchasing mobile homes: On the one hand, a mobile home can be seen as a vehicle if it is built on a trailer. On the other hand, if it is parked at a fixed parking space for a longer period of time, it can be regarded as a building and thus may require a building permit. If you want to put a mobile home next to your own swimming pool at your primary residence, it is worth finding out more about legal requirements from the responsible authority.
