Purged Mobile Homes
Purged Mobile Homes are manufactured homes that
• Are permanently affixed to the ground
• Are classified as real estate improvements
• Are no longer capable of being legally moved over highways or streets
In order for a manufactured home title to be purged into a Real Estate Improvement, all taxes must be current and the owner must present an original certificate of title along with an application for purging to the Assessor.
If the manufactured home is financed, the holders of the mortgage must sign a consent statement, which must be submitted with the application.
Once the title has been purged by the State, the home cannot be legally moved over highways and streets and, it will be assessed as real property
