Most mobile homes are sold without land, and there is a fee to get them situated, adds USA Today. Hook-ups to a septic tank or to gas or electricity may result in additional charges when the home is moved to its location.

If the home is already situated, park owners may charge additional fees for fresh water, waste removal, electricity or gas, if hook-ups are available, adds SFGate. The park owner must also explain any fees.
