Manufactured Home Registry

- Changing Exemption Status
- Rescinding a Residential Exemption
When a client requests a change to the register (a Public Amendment) and provides a fax number, the Manufactured Home Registry will fax the vertification statement and no other copy will be sent by the Registry.
Non Residential Exemptions are obtained when a home is destroyed or dismantled or it is used for non residential purposes, such as a storage shed or office.
To process a non residential exemption the registered owner(s) must complete and sign the Non Residential Exemption form and submit other supporting documents. This requirement is sometimes very difficult to follow when the home has been sold with the land, and the seller cannot be found to sign the transfer documents, or the registered owner of the home is now deceased. Therefore, the Manufactured Home Registry has developed new procedures to handle these problem homes that are basically worthless.
Contact the Registry for assistance when you are involved with such a situation.
The Manufactured Home Registry no longer issues a Variation Order and an Exemption Order when a home is going from Residential Exemption status to Non Residential Exemption. The verification statement is the only document issued by the Registry.
The following documents must be submitted when a Residential Exemption is being rescinded (reregistered):
- A Land Title Office search no older than two weeks.
- If lien(s) show on the Land Title Office search, a letter of consent is required from the secured party/parties. The letter does not have to be addressed to the Registry and can be a fax or photocopy.
- An Application for Initial Registration of a Manufactured Home form.
The letter asking for the rescinding of the Residential Exemption is no longer required.
