John, if I understand you correctly, you plan to purchase the two lots and would like to place a mobile home on each.
Assuming the lots are outside the city, you will need to obtain a permit from the county building department. It would be a good idea to make your offer to purchase contingent upon obtaining all the necessary permits. The county will then let you know if there is a legal problem. Be sure to ask them about placing a home on each lot. If the land is not platted, there could be a problem.
Once you obtain the permits, I don’t believe there would be any other legal problems. In your offer to buy, you should ask the seller to provide you with a title insurance binder and policy.
