Chapter 17, Section E:
Reactivation of Title for a Manufactured Home

Revised August 28, 2008


Requirements for Reactivating a Manufactured Home Title

TRD regulation 18.19.3.72 provides that:

The owner of a housing structure, title to which had been issued pursuant to the Motor Vehicle Code as a manufactured home and which title is deactivated, may request that the title issued pursuant to the Motor Vehicle Code be reactivated. The department shall reactivate the title as a manufactured home pursuant to the provisions of the Motor Vehicle Code and reissue it to the owner only upon receipt of documentation that all liens or mortgages against the housing structure and the land upon which it is affixed have been released. The department shall notify the valuation authority that the title has been reactivated.

To meet these requirements, MVD will reactivate the title to a New Mexico titled manufactured home once the following requirements have been met.

  1. Proof of ownership
    Proof must describe home by year, make and VIN.
  2. Proof that no lien or mortgage exists
    on the home or the land on which it sits - must describe home by year, make and VIN
    (A letter from the mortgage company stating that they have interest only in the land on not on the home will suffice.)

  3. Letter from County Assessor stating that home is assessed as personal property
    Must describe home by year, make and VIN.

  4. Tax Release from Treasurer or Assessor

MVD will issue a duplicate title to the owner for a fee of $16.50.

Do we need the county codes here? Should they be someplace else, or in their own section?
