Hi,

Mobile home without land is treated like a car. As much as I know, there are no lien recorded on title of a mobile home except the lender's liens.

You can check the seller's title and come to know what liens are there on the title. At the time of purchase, while you take a new title transfer to the title transfer desk, they will be able to tell you about any outstanding property taxes and won't let you transfer the title until the outstanding taxes are paid.

Hi,

You can make a title search with the Department of Motor Vehicles. Federal liens can be placed on all the real estate and personal property.

Before buying a mobile home you must contact the County Clerk's/Treasurer's office to ensure that there is no tax bills or lien against the home.

Hi,

How did you get the ownership of the mobile home? Was it given to you through a quitclaim or a warranty deed? If the title was transferred through such a deed, you need to take the notarized deed to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles and get a new title issued in your name.

Hi Amanda,

How did you come to know the title is not in the couple's names? If it is true then who is the actual owner of the property? You should immediately stop making the payments to the couple. If you entered into any kind of agreement with them, where they claimed they have the free title to the property, you can sue them for providing you with false information. This is one kind of a fraud.

Hi Austria,

You need to contact with the Department of Motor Vehicles in your state. They will verify if the property is actually owned by you. You will be required to submit some proofs like you driving license, etc. in support of your ownership claims. Once the DMV is sure you are the owner of the mobile home, they will issue a duplicate title in your name for your mobile home.

Hi patsy,

You need the title to prove you have ownership rights to mobile home. It is very crucial to have the title in your name. Otherwise, you will find it difficult to prove your ownership in case any issues arise regarding the property title. It could be purchasing the property with cash. But it does not eliminate the need for a clear title to the property. Whoever you are buying the property from has to transfer the title to you. If the seller has lost the title, you should contact the Dept. of Motor Vehicle regarding this before purchasing the home.

We are currently trying to sell a mobile home that has been in my family since 1975 and the original title was lost in a house fire last year. The title company has been unable to locate the mobile in any records and is willing only to insure the land but not the house. Is there anything else we can do to satisfy the title company?

Hi,

If your mobile home was lost in a house fire last year, you can try and obtain a duplicate title on the home. You can contact the Department of Motor Vehicles and check out the procedure of how you can get a duplicate title. Generally, the owner has to file a certain form and then pay some amount of fees to obtain a duplicate title for the mobile home. If you can get a new title on the property, I believe, the title company will be ready to insure the home.
