Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Would I be a tenant of the house?
If you are buying a house but won't own the land, then you would be a tenant of the land owned by the trust and the house would be your personal property, just like mobile home except it is attached to the ground.
Who is responsible for the house as landlord for upkeep and occupancy conditions?
You own the house so it is your personal property so you are responsible for it
Generally this is not a good idea unless you can get a long term lease on the land, as in 50+ years because if you get a short term lease, like a couple years, then when the lease expires, the trust could simply evict you and anything you put into the house would be lost unless you actually physically removed the house from the land and moved it elsewhere.
