you’ll want to get the title info etc. at your local HCD office (the department of Housing and Community Development are the state agency here in CA that handles all mobile home info, title transfers, taxes, registration etc. They’re number is 1-800-952-8356).
As far as moving mobile homes here in S. CA. here basically is what your looking at. And this is single wides:
tear down… about 400 bucks to get someone who knows what they are doing. It can be involved as far as axles, and what I hate the most are car ports. They turn quickly into a whole bunch of little pieces.
Okay once it’s tore down if your moving it within the county, let’s say like 15 miles or so, your looking at like 300 bucks or so.
Of course this is providing that you can find a home (a park) that will let you move it in. Do a big book search (www.bigbook.com) and start smiling and dialing.
Okay I’m not sure about Riverside, but here in San Diego County we have the fun expense of earthquake bracing which must be done to ALL homes that are moved. It’s like 1600 bucks. Also the skirting that your teardown guy, meticulously saved for you, most likely won’t work or fit properly when you get the thing moved. So there another couple hundred bucks, and then the actual set up will run around 400 bucks or so. Of course this is providing that you pay one of these guys who do it for a living.
You will also most likely have to get an occupancy permit once it’s all done.
Now you can start the Lonnie procedure and sell it on a note.
Anyhow that’s been my experience here in San Diego.
