The Registration and Titling (R&T) Program provides registration and title documents for new or resold manufactured homes, commercial modular(s), floating homes and truck campers. The program annually renews registrations for nearly 205,000 manufactured homes and commercial modular(s) in four district offices throughout the state, as well as our headquarters office in Sacramento, and provides assistance to dealers, escrow offices, manufacturers, local tax assessors, and the general public in obtaining title and registration documents, registration renewals, tax clearances, and title transfers for manufactured homes, commercial modular(s), truck campers and floating homes. Contact R&T.

Changes of Ownership or Registration Renewals
The Program maintains records and files establishing the existence and ownership of manufactured homes, mobilehomes, commercial modulars, floating homes, and truck campers. Any changes of ownership or registration renewals are updated and new documents are mailed to the owners. Scanned copies of the initial reporting documents are kept as permanent history records.
If your mobilehome or commercial modular has been destroyed, you must declare the destroyed unit as “salvage.” For detailed information on when and how to declare a unit salvage, look at the information on the Salvage Units page.
