Karl really did a good job answering your question.
In case you are worried about the size of the taxes/fees, don’t be. They are not that high.
As Karl mentioned, unlike cars, they don’t collect sales tax any more for MHs. It has been replaced by an annual tax. The annual tax (paid to the Treasurer) for the homes I have looked at has been around $150. (Billed semi-annually around Feb and Aug). The full year must be paid to transfer the title. This should be paid by the seller (unless you strike some other agreement).
In Butler County the Auditor’s Fee is $1 for every $1000 in sale price. So for a $5000 sale their fee is $5.
The Clerk has a few fees, Title fee,Arhive fee, Affadavit fee, and maybe something else, the total is around $15.
You can have your buyer pay these fees. And I believe Lonnie even suggests a “Processing Fee” for yourself if you so desire.
