Register Your Mobilehome California Surpasses $2.5 Million in Savings for Homeowners - State Program Saves Homeowners an Average of $3,000 Through Fee and Tax Waivers
Register Your Mobilehome California, administered by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) gives owners whose mobilehomes were never been properly titled and registered a path forward to correct the issue, ensuring more families have the opportunity to obtain proof of ownership for homes they rightfully purchased. Through the program, the average homeowner saves nearly $3,000.
“Many Californian mobilehome owners who used this program say they weren’t aware they needed title and registration, because the previous owner didn’t inform them, or they inherited their home from relatives who also didn’t know,” said HCD Director Gustavo Velasquez.
“This program makes the property legal, protecting homeowners from being evicted from mobilehome parks for failure to have title and registration,” he added. “It also opens the door for homeowners to properly sell or transfer their mobilehomes, collect fire or flood insurance claims, and obtain permits for repairs and upgrades.”
HCD continues to take applications from the public. Mobilehome owners can follow application instructions on HCD’s website at registeryourmobilehomeca.org or call (800) 952-8356 to receive technical assistance.
