First, the person or company that moves the home must
contact the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) (http://www.txdot.state.tx.us)
to obtain any required permit, a copy of which must be submitted with
your application for a new SOL. Next, you will need to apply for a new
SOL, showing the new location. Also, any lien holders will need to be
discharged (paid off) or give their written consent to the move.
If an SOL applicant had the home moved
bought the home, we must have a copy of the moving permit. If the move
took place too long ago or if the home was moved without a permit, the
applicant could, in lieu of a moving permit, provide a “Tax
Certificate” issued by the county where the home used to be installed
showing no taxes due. If taxes are due, they will have to be paid.
If a consumer purchases a home from a licensed retailer and finds that
the retailer moved the home without a permit or that there are taxes
owed on the home at its previous location, the consumer may file a
complaint with the Department within two years from the date of
purchase. If so, the Consumer Protection staff may be able to force the
retailer to pay the taxes owed or file against their bond.
