What steps must I take as a manufactured home owner before selling, moving or trading in my home?

Bring your title or registration certificate to the County Assessor's office. The staff will determine if the manufactured home is currently assessed for property taxes. If so, a Tax Release will be issued once current and prior taxes have been paid with the County Treasurer and the seller or buyer provides the County Assessor with the new buyer name and mailing address information. Current and prior year taxes must be paid with the County Treasurer before issuance of the Tax Release. The Tax Release and current Title must be taken to the MVD in order to receive a new title under the new owner's name.

In the case of moves, additional steps must be taken. Prior to the issuance of a Tax Release, the Flood Plain Permit Application process must be completed with the municipality where the manufactured home will be moved. If the new home site is in an unincorporated area, the Flood Plain Permit Application process must be completed through the Grant County Planning Department. In addition, once the Flood Plain Permit Application process and the Tax Release are completed, a Moving Permit must be purchased from the Grant County Treasurer's Office. Please also speak to representatives of any municipality the manufactured home will move through or to, as there may be additional local requirements.
