MANUFACTURED HOMES

Ownership transfers are processed at the Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services Building Codes Division (BCD) or through a title company. The process changes the ownership and/or the location of a home in the State’s records. Simply signing an ownership document or sales agreement does not transfer ownership. Forms and instructions can be downloaded at BCD’s website.
Ownership and location records in the Assessor’s Office will be updated only after we receive notice from BCD that a transfer or trip permit has been completed. Until the transfer or siting is complete, our records will continue to show the current owner/seller responsible for all property taxes.


Selling a manufactured home?
  • Pay all property taxes, interest and fees due to the Josephine County Tax Collector’s Office.
  • Obtain a County Manufactured Home Ownership Document Application for New and Used Homes (Form 2952) from the BCD website or from our office.
  • Obtain a Josephine County Manufactured Home Certification form from the Assessor’s Office. A fillable pdf is available in the link below. Our office will confirm that the taxes are paid in full and certify this form. There is a $12 fee to certify this form, which can be paid with cash or money order; we do not accept personal checks. Bring or mail the form with your payment to our office at 500 NW 6th Street in Grants Pass, OR 97526. The form will be certified and then returned to you in person at our customer service counter, by mail, or email and must accompany the forms you will submit to BCD.
  • Provide the current DMV title or BCD ownership document signed off by the seller(s) and any lien holder(s).
  • Send all forms and payment of $55 for the BCD transfer fee to Oregon Department of Building Codes at the address shown on the BCD forms. BCD accepts checks, money orders and credit/debit cards. BCD will process your paperwork and mail you a new Ownership Document within 14 days to the address you provide on Form 2952. Alternatively, you may log in to BCD's online MHODS portal here and process your transfer immediately. Be advised you will be required to upload your documents to BCD to complete the transfer. Only credit/debit cards are accepted using the online portal.
You may call us at 541-474-5260 for more information or contact BCD at 503-373-1309 or at their website.

Moving a manufactured home?
  • Secure a placement permit from your local Planning Department to be sure that the manufactured home may be sited at the new location.

  • Home is moving within Josephine County after July 1 and before October 15.
  • Home is moving from Josephine County to another Oregon county after January 1 and before October 15.
  • Home is moving out of state after July 1 and before October 15.

If the home is moving into our out of Josephine County but within the State of Oregon, you will need a Manufactured Home Certification from both counties.
  • Send all forms and payment of $55 and $5 for each section of home to the Oregon Department of Building Codes at the address shown on the BCD forms. BCD accepts checks, money orders and credit/debit cards. Alternatively, you may log in to BCD's MHODS portal here and process your trip permit transaction online.

De-titling a manufactured home from ownership document
Your DMV title or Ownership Document may be eligible for the de-titling process if the ownership of your land and manufactured home are identical. This de-titling means that the manufactured home is recorded with the County Clerk’s Office as part of the real property land account on which it is located and is considered real property. You may contact any title company, call us at 541-474-5260 or visit BCD’s website for more details on how to complete this process.

 
Demolishing a manufactured home?
When you demolish your manufactured home, you need to:
  • Pay all property taxes, interest and fees currently due.
  • File a Manufactured Home Ownership Document Application for New and Used Homes form (form 2952) with the Assessor’s office and submit the current title or ownership document. BCD will be notified once the home has been confirmed gone.
One of our appraisers will verify the home no longer exists for the applicable tax year. We will notify BCD that the home has been demolished.
