Mobile Home Title Requirements

Step 1:

To transfer a mobile home from one Delaware resident to another, the seller must provide the buyer the following documents:

  • A Delaware certificate of title and a letter from the County Receiver of Taxes office stating there are no outstanding taxes owed on the mobile home. County Receiver of Taxes:
    1. New Castle County – 87 Reads Way, New Castle, De 19720 – (302)-395-5340
    2. Kent County – 555 Bay Rd, Dover, De 19901 (302)-744-2341

  • The seller must complete the Assignment of Certificate of Title section 1 on the back of the title.
  • All sellers must sign the title, unless names on the face of the title appear as and/or.

Step 2:

  • The buyer must complete the Purchaser's Application on the back of the title. All applicants must provide their Name(s), Address, License number(s), Date of Birth, and all owner’s signatures.
  • All buyers must sign this application
  • If the mobile home is financed, the buyer must complete the Lien Section on the back of the title. The lien information must be added in Block 3 on a Delaware Title. If there is no lien, you are required to write “NONE” then initial next to that.
  • Delaware titles do not require a notary.
  • DMV recommends that all parties appear at our office to complete the Transfer.

All new and used mobile homes from out-of-state:

  • All new and used mobile homes from an out-of-state dealer or individual must have the serial number verified by a Delaware Inspector before a title can be issued.
  • A DMV inspector will provide the new owner with an Application for Title (MV212A).
  • Along with your Application for Title, you will need to provide the following documents: the Certificate of Origin or the existing title; the bill of sale and your Delaware driver's license or other accepted proof of residency.
  • The signatures of all owners must appear on the application for title.
  • The Certificate of Origin or out-of-state title must be assigned properly.
  • If your mobile home has been purchased from out-of-state it will be necessary to verify the notary requirement of that state.
