How do I determine whether a property that my client wants to sell is considered a manufactured home requiring me to register with the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs?

Whether or not you need to register as a manufactured-housing broker with the TDHCA depends on the property and your recent transactions.

If the home is affixed to a permanent foundation and the manufacturer’s certificate or document of title been canceled, it’s considered real estate and you can take part in the transaction without registering as a manufactured-housing broker.

If the home is not attached to a permanent foundation or if the manufacturer’s certificate or document of title has not been canceled, and you haven’t negotiated any similar transactions in the past 12 months, then you do not have to register. However, if you have negotiated any similar transactions in the past 12 months, you would be considered to be acting as a manufactured-housing broker and must register with the TDHCA to comply with state law.
