A structure that has been partially or entirely constructed at another location and moved onto the property (on a permanent foundation). A manufactured home may or may not be a mobile home. Homes that are permanently affixed to a foundation often may be classified as real property under applicable state law, and may be financed with a mortgage. Homes that are not permanently affixed to a foundation generally are classified as personal property, and are financed with a retail installment sales agreement.
A house that is not built on site. The house is made in sections at a factory and then transported to the final location.
Homes and dwellings that are not built at the home site and are moved to the location are considered manufactured housing. Manufactured housing units must be built on a permanent chassis at a factory and then transported to a permanent site and attached to a foundation. All manufactured homes must be built to meet set standards. The standards focus on such aspects as design, strength, energy efficiency, and fire resistance.
Homes that are built entirely in a factory in accordance with a federal building code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Manufactured homes may be single- or multi-section and are transported from the factory to a site and installed. Homes that are permanently affixed to a foundation often may be classified as real property under applicable state law, and may be financed with a mortgage. Homes that are not permanently affixed to a foundation generally are classified as personal property, and are financed with a retail installment sales agreement.
Manufactured Home means a structure, transportable in one or more sections, and which is built on a permanent chassis and designed to be used as a dwelling with or without a permanent foundation when connected to the required utilities, and includes the plumbing, heating, air-conditioning, and electrical systems contained therein. Modular homes that meet HUD code standards are included in this definition.
Housing units partially or completely built in a factory.
Homes that are preconstructed in a factory then transported and assembled to a lot where they are placed temporarily or permanently. Styles vary from modest trailers to homes that look as if they were built on site.
Factory-built or prefabricated housing, including mobile homes.
Known as "pre-fab" housing, any dwelling that is assembled out of components (i.e. walls, floors, roof) constructed off-site and then brought to the building lot.
Once known as ''mobile homes,'' manufactured housing is any building which has been constructed off site, then moved onto a piece of real property.
Prefabricated homes that can range from simple trailers to larger dwellings.
The home must be legally classified as real property, must be permanently affixed to a foundation and must assume characteristics of site-built housing. Wheels, axles and trailer hitches must be removed and, if state law requires anchors, anchors must be provided.
Partially factory-assembled units designed to be transported in parts and then assembled on the site. Prefabricated homes.
Homes built in a factory to federal standards and inspected by federally certified agencies. These homes are often assembled on site.
Factory-built home that can be placed temporarily or permanently upon land. Styles vary from modest trailers to dwellings that look like site-built houses.
homes and dwellings that are not built at the home site and are moved to the location. These units must be built on a permanent basis at a factory and then transported to a permanent site and attached to a foundation. All must be built to meet standards set forth by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Manufactured housing (also known as prefab housing) is a type of housing unit that is largely assembled in factories and then transported to sites of use.
