Realtors, Lenders & Appraisers

If you're refinancing, buying or selling a manufactured or mobile home that was altered, a lender may ask you to prove the work was permitted and inspected.

Use the information on this page to check for permits that have been filed for past work, or purchase a Homeowner Requested Inspection to identify unpermitted work. At the inspection, the inspector will let you know what work was done without a permit; and give you a report letting you know what permits you will need to be in compliance.

Did the alternations require a permit?
Check the list of which alterations require permits could save you time and money. The work that was done may not have needed a permit.

If the work did require a permit, check our database to see if one was filed.

  1. Under Permit Type, select Manufactured / Mobile Home.
  2. Under Date Permit was Purchased, input Applied Beginning Date, for example, 1/1/2008 (records only kept for six years).
  3. Input Applied End Date, for example, 1/1/2009.

  5. To improve your search results, enter the county where the property is located.
  6. Click LOOK UP.
  7. If you don’t find that a permit was taken out, then you will need to buy the required permit and request the inspection.
