- May I install my own home If it is new? No. Only a licensed installer may install, relevel, or modify any component of the manufactured home’s foundation.
- I want to move my mobile home, What should I do?
- First, the person or company that moves the home must contact the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) (http://www.txdot.state.tx.us) to obtain any required permit, a copy of which must be submitted with your application for a new SOL. Next, you will need to apply for a new SOL, showing the new location. Also, any lien holders will need to be discharged (paid off) or give their written consent to the move. (Top)
- Is the moving permit required on applications where the home was moved in the past?
If an SOL applicant had the home moved when they bought the home, we must have a copy of the moving permit. If the move took place too long ago or if the home was moved without a permit, the applicant could, in lieu of a moving permit, provide a “Tax Certificate” issued by the county where the home used to be installed showing no taxes due. If taxes are due, they will have to be paid.If a consumer purchases a home from a licensed retailer and finds that the retailer moved the home without a permit or that there are taxes owed on the home at its previous location, the consumer may file a complaint with the Department within two years from the date of purchase. If so, the Consumer Protection staff may be able to force theretailer to pay the taxes owed or file against their bond. (Top) call for more answers to common questions 210-887-2760
