Hi Lea!

Welcome to forums!

The seller of the property will be able to give the title to the mobile home. Once you get the deed, you'll have to record it with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Once you've the title of the property, you'll be able to get an insurance for the property.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hello, My friends father passed away, and we cannot find the title to his double wide. It had another owner before him and we don't know any of his information. We did find the Serial number and where it was manufactured, but that company has since closed. We went to DMV, said they could not help us. Friend wants to sell property. We don't know what to do. Thank you

Hi kim,

You're in a tough situation. You will be liable for paying off the liens now or else you won't be able to sell off the property or take out a mortgage on it. You can contact a real estate attorney and take his/her opinion in this matter.

Take care

Forget about the "real estate" part of the description of the attorney needed. A mobile home is personal property, not real estate, so you don't need one who specializes in real estate matters. By all means, however, find a good lawyer - one who can help explain what is needed to be done to protect your son.

In future dealings of any kind, if you don't know anything about what you're doing, please be certain to get advice before taking action, rather than after the fact.

Tracy, if you're selling a property that is permanently affixed to a foundation, that's a house, for all intents and purposes. Check with your realtor if you have one, or your lawyer if you have one, and be certain as to the status of the home. If it's now considered real estate, you wouldn't have to worry about a VIN number, as it isn't really a vehicle.

Unless you are able to show the title of the property, you won't be able to sell off the property. You should contact a real estate attorney and take his/her opinion in this regard. The attorney will be able to guide you in this matter.

I found a fema cottage mobile home that has been abandoned on a piece of property. It was parked on vacant property in 2006. Not set up or ever lived in. No one ever came back for it. Went to the county clerk to find out who owns the property and they have no record of ownership for the land. How can I get this mobile home moved on my property which is about 2 miles away from where it is parked? The neighbors don't know who owns the property or the mobile home.

my grandmother is trying to buy a mobile home from a woman in louisiana. the woman that owns it now was going through a divorce when she got it. the owner before the lady going through a divorce let her do a lease to own. when she paid the final payment he sent her a letter stating she had paid in full. however she never got with the man to do the title. my grandmother is wanting a title before she buys the trailer how does the woman go about getting a title if she cannont get ahold of the owner that allowed her to do a lease to own.

I bought a mobile home from a man in Pa. we didn't have a sales contract just verbal agreement. When it was paid in full I wanted the title but he said he didn't have one and just gave me a bill of sale saying that was just as good as a title. what am I too think?

I have a similar situation. I live on a large piece of property that is owned by one man. He bought the land with some mobile homes ON the land. I don't know if there was individual signed papers that went with these mobiles homes when the land was sold to him, but these homes have been out here long before the owner bought the land. Anyway, The owner (my boss) is giving me one of them and I want to make it official. Where is the serial/VIN number so I can run it by whatever legal department to get a paper for my boss to sign over?

There is no lien on it. It's a 70's-80's home that I intent to work on, but just need to know the process of moving it from whoever's name is on this home to my own name. HELP (aussiebay88@gmail.com)

Hi angela,

Your parents will have to sign a quit claim deed and transfer the property to you. Once they sign the deed, you would become the owner of the property.

To melody,

It will be difficult for the lady to sell the mobile home without her ex-husband's signature. I would suggest the lady to contact a real estate attorney and take his opinion in this matter.

Take care.

Hi Tracer,

The person who put the mobile home on the property can provide you with the VIN number. But that does not seem like a possibility, right? I think you can go to your local motor vehicle office and check the title history of the mobile home. You may get some information about who the actual owner is and other related details about the mobile home. If the current owner (your boss) does not have a legal title to the home, he cannot sell or transfer it to you. However, since the home has been there on the property for a long time and none has ever claimed its ownership, he can get the title through adverse possession. But you need to consult an attorney to find out if any such option is available in your situation.

Welcome brianna,

Unless the woman get holds of her husband and gets the deed transferred in her name, she won't become the sole owner of the property. Unless she becomes the sole owner of the property, she won't be able to sell off the property to your grandmother.

The party transferring the property to you will have to sign a quit claim deed and transfer the ownership of the property to you legally. This will make you the owner of the property and you would be able to record the deed at the county recorder's office.

Hi Mark,

Who holds the property title at present? Who transferred the ownership to you? Does he/she hold the title to the property? In case he/she has the title in his/her name, you can ask him/her to transfer it to you through a quit claim deed. In case, the title is lost, you can contact the local office of the Department of Motor Vehicle and get a new title issued in your name.

Hi,

Can you elaborate on the situation? Have you lost the title to your mobile home? Is your mobile home set on a permanent foundation and treated as a real estate property? Then you need to contact your local land record's office. If it does not have a permanent foundation, you will have to contact the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Hi donnajaz!

Welcome to forums!

You will have to contact the lender and get a lien release certificate. If your mother has left a will, then it needs to be probated in order to get the property transferred in your names. Then you all can sign a quitclaim deed and transfer the property to your sister.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.
