I paid for a mobile home and land, not knowing it was in probate and the lady is backing out of the deal, and the lawyer I had says he knows nothing about the land after hiring him to draw a contract
If you've already paid for the land and mobile home, you need to ask the seller to return your money or to move forward with the sale. Otherwise, you will need to sue her to either get your money back or to specifically perform the sale. There are several options available to resolve this situation but you should consult with an experienced real estate attorney (who handles real estate litigation) to provide you with specific legal advice.
Out of curiosity, did the seller already provide you with a deed to the land?
