Chattel Mortgage is a legal claim against an asset other than real estate, which is used as collateral for loan. In simple terms, it is a legal claim on the personal property used as collateral for loan. It was founded in 1998, with the only purpose of providing finance for manufactured home owners.

In fact the term chattel mortgage is used when referring to a loan in a mobile or manufactured homes.Under the uniform commercial code, chattel mortgages have been replaced by security agreements.

Advantages of chattel mortgage are as following:

Hi Joy,

Welcome to the forum.

There are several lenders in the United States who offer loan programs involving 100% financing. But in order to get 100% financing, one should be prepared to deal with a high interest rate. Moreover, the mobile home should have a permanent foundation.

Are you willing to take a 100% mobile home loan?

Just a quick update for you.

The rules of Mobile Home financing have changed since this post was first originated. Some for the better, some not.

There are currently no lenders or investors that we know of in the market (and we keep close track of this) that are offering no money down loans.

The minimum down payment (DP) is 5% right now and does require excellent credit.

Many customers will actually be required to bring at least 10% down.

On the bright side rates are better now for home only financing than they have been in a while.

For the most up to date guidelines on Chattel Loans see our site:


We hope this helps the people out there searching for these loans.

sam, thank you for bringing this information to the light. as we know, there are mobile home lenders scattered throughout the country, but the information apparently does not make its way into the public's recognition very easily. i briefly scanned your site, and there's obviously some value there.

As far as I know, with the help of a chattel mortgage, the finance provider provides funds for the purchase of a vehicle. The buyer takes ownership of the motor vehicle at the time of purchase. The financier, on the other hand, takes a mortgage over the vehicle as security for the car loan. Once the contract is completed by the buyer, the loan is removed. Thus, the customer gets a clear title to the motor vehicle.
