Can you put a Rental mobile home on a lot without a permit in Unincorporated Harris County? It is a rental mobile home that a tenant wants to put on our lot..


They want to store it there without electricity and without anyone living there until we (the property owners) get the permit.. Since they do not want to pay rent where they currently live..

Update 2:

Harris County Texas

    There is likely not a county in the country which will allow an un-permitted mobile home to be placed on a lot. And what will you do if these charming "tenants", (who don't want to pay rent where they currently live!?!) do not move into or pay rent for this mobile home? It costs about $5000 to move a mobile home. Are you willing to take that risk? What if it does not meet regulations and the county requires you to remove it?

    You are doing this backwards. It will be much more cost effective to get the permit, then move the MH on. Doing it in reverse will get the ire of the local planning department and you could be facing some stiff penalties.
