Can my son put a manufactured home on a parcel of land we own

Customer Question

Can my son put a manufactured home on a parcel of land we own that is behind our home
without signing over the land or gifting it to him? We want the land to stay in our name but are ok with him putting a house on it. Eventually he would like to buy the property but
cannot afford house and land at this time.

Thank you for using JustAnswer. Do you happen to know of any restrictive covenants or zoning issues that would otherwise prevent this?

No

Have you checked out whether there are any zoning issues through the "Check My Property" page at Pierce County website? (https://palsonline.co.pierce.wa.us/pals/public/#/AboutMyProperty)

Yes I checked. Property was originally given to my husband by his father ---for love and affection.

Okay. But what does it say about zoning?

Thank you for that information. You said "nevermind" so I do want to make sure that you want to go through with this question and are willing to rate positively a helpful answer... Please confirm that's the case.
