When selling a mobile/manufactured home to another person, the buyer and seller are responsible to file information with the Department of Public Safety by transferring the certificate of title at the county registrar's office of motor vehicles. Before the registrar transfers ownership, the following requirements must be satisfied:
All past and current taxes due are paid
A certified statement from the assessor and auditor-treasurer of the county where the home is located acknowledging that it has been assessed and that taxes have been paid must be furnished
A current certificate of title with any required lien releases must be submitted
The seller should inform the assessor about the change in ownership. Once a new certificate of title is issued, the buyer should also furnish a copy to the assessor to ensure that the county assessment records are updated.
