When placing a manufactured house on a piece of land, it is important to consider factors such as grading, house position, access for delivering the home, utilities (water, sewer, electric, gas, etc.), and permitting. Also, professional reports and studies will be required as part of the project. When deciding to buy land or assessing your budget, these reports will help you understand the feasibility and estimated costs before you get very far into the project.
If you are a prospective or new owner of the property, it is worth checking if you can obtain any reports that may have already been completed by the previous owner of your property.
Below is list of typical permitting requirements. Actual requirements and time to complete them may vary. All permitting fees are to be paid by owner. We recommend hiring a permit processing professional to ensure the permits for your project are handled in a timely and efficient manner.
WARNING: Manufactured homes and Modular/Prefab/Factory Built homes are not the same. Ensure when obtaining permits, you are getting permits for a Manufactured Home, not Modular/Prefab/Factory built which follow a different building code. For further detail on the differences between those types of pre built homes, read our explanation by clicking here. ”
