Deltona, FL asked in Land Use & Zoning and Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: Can a manufactured house dealer force receipt of a house without them first getting a permit or us having the space?

Last month it's discovered that the easements require a 100' setback, not the 50' that shows up on the survey we were given by the seller which makes it impossible to build anything without a variance.  Got the meeting for that, all is well, hearing set for mid Sep. Friday my house dealer (the one in charge of permitting, improvements, etc) tells me that we have to receive a house on the 14th of august.  This is a huge problem because it would be in violation of codes, we don't have a permit, there's still all the improvements to be done, and there is no proper place to put the house so it would probably not be good for the house itself to just be dumped there improperly.

A: Your written agreement with the house dealer should have all the answers.
