E. Site - The manufactured unit must not have been installed or occupied previously at any other site or location. Manufactured units may be moved only from the manufacturer’s or dealer’s lot to the site on which the unit will be insured. If a permanent foundation is to be constructed under an existing eligible unit, the unit may be jacked up in order to install a new foundation. (See summary of main requirements in Appendix 11, item 12 of HUD Handbook 4145.1 Rev-2.)
F. Tags - All manufactured homes must have an affixed HUD seal(s) located on the outside of the home. If the home is a multi-wide unit, each unit must have a seal. This will be numbered sequentially. Appraiser is to list the manufactured unit’s tag number(s) on the appraisal report in one of the comment sections, preferably on the front page under “Additional Features”. If for any reason the tags are missing, appraisers must REJECT the property and notify the lender. In some states a manufactured home may not be re-sold if missing a seal. If this is the case, the property is a reject. However, a lender may contact the NCSCS (Housing Building Technology Division) and request issuance of a letter stating that the home was in fact HUD labeled. Contact NCSCS (Pam Brillhart) 703-437-0100. (The information on the data plate inside the home is not an acceptable alternative.). The lender/home owner need to obtain the serial number(s) of the home from the data plate found inside the home, or the serial numbers found on the steel chassis under the home. With these numbers the HUD and the NCSCS can research to see if in fact the home was properly labeled.
Title I - Title I consists of two loan programs, one for property improvements and one for the purchase of manufactured homes and/or lots on which the manufactured homes are to be placed. Repossessions under this program are done by the lender under the Uniform Commercial Code or through judicial processes. For more information on the Title I program, visit their web site at http://www.hud.gov/progdesc/manuf14.html. or call the Title I customer service number 202-708-6396. (Regulations can be found in 24CFR 201.) Sections 8-3 and 8-4 of HUD Handbook 4250.2 pertain to Title I.
