Effective January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2019, owners of mobile homes and manufactured homes who are currently not the registered owner on record are eligible to apply for registration or conditional registration with a fee and tax waiver from the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).
A new state program can open the door to legal ownership, waiving certain fees and back taxes.
Why registering your mobilehome is the right move:
Most mobilehome parks require legal registration
Registration helps legally transfer title of mobilehomes to heirs – spouse, children, etc.
Some home-improvement projects require a building permit – and proper registration
More mobilehome parks and utility companies are embracing individual rental space connections for services, such as electricity and water, and require registration.
Fire and flood insurance require registration
These guidelines are for unregistered homes that have an HCD decal number that begins with the letter "L" and pay property taxes to the local county the home is located in.
