The land described herein shall not be deemed to include any house trailer or mobile home standing on said premises.

  • Look up the definitions of "house trailer" and "mobile home".

  • When the land is sold, there may be a house trailer or mobile home on it. If so, that trailer/home is not part of the transaction. (Presumably it will be moved, or the owner of it will begin paying lot rent to the new landowner.)

The land -> a piece of land described herein -> described in this document shall not be deemed to include -> shall not be seen as land + something else"

That "something else" is "any house, trailer or mobile home"

standing on said premises. -> that is standing on that piece of land.

In a simple way:

When we talk about "the land" in this document, we mean just the land, not any house, trailer or mobile home that is on that land.

or very short:

We are talking about the land without any of the mentioned things on it.

  • I wouldn't go as far as "without anything" after it has excluded mobile homes and trailers. If I was buying such deeds, and the land had a fixed structure on it, I'd want clarification beyond that sentence as to whether the fixed structure came with the land or not.

  • @JonHanna You're right, there are other things that may be on the land and included in the deal.

It means the land being described shouldn't be considered or assumed to contain a house trailer or a mobile home within its boundaries.

  • Even if it does.
