Is it possible to get a mortgage loan WITHOUT owning the land to put the house on?

Just some quick background info: My mom has a home on about 1-2 acres of land. We were hoping to order a manufactured home to put directly behind her house on HER property. The bank says that the land must be in OUR name in order to get a loan. Meaning my mom would have to deed us part of her property (which she doesn’t necessarily want to do). My question is, in order to get ANY kind of mortgage loan, does the land HAVE to be in our name? Or is there some kind of provision my mom can sign giving us permission to do this?
