Requirements when applying for a Certificate of Title and Registration
- You must have proof of ownership in order to title a mobile home. If there is more than one part to the mobile home (double-wide or triple-wide), each part is titled and registered separately.
- A Certificate of Title is the proof of ownership to a mobile home in the state of Florida. Most mobile homes are required to be titled. The exception is when mobile homes are declared as real property.
- Sale tax, title fees, and registration fees will be due at the time the mobile home is titled. Be sure to record a lien if the mobile home is financed.
Mobile Home Registrations
Mobile homes are required to be registered with a current decal at all times, even when unoccupied. Mobile home decals expire December 31st of each year. The fee to register a mobile home is determined by the length of the mobile home. A double-wide or triple-wide mobile home requires separate registration for each side. Failure to register every year will result in delinquent tax.
*Note: If you currently have a regular mobile home decal, and you own the land your mobile home is affixed to, you may declare it as real property instead of renewing the registration annually. (See FAQ's section under Mobile Homes for more info.)
