Manufactured Homes

Any new manufactured (mobile) home installed anywhere in North Dakota must be installed by a licensed installer, and inspected by a certified inspector to assure that it is installed according to the manufacturer's installation instructions. The primary purpose of the program is to guarantee that all new manufactured homes are properly installed and that problems found are corrected by the registered installer. Currently licensed installers and certified inspectors can be found using the link below.

North Dakota has trained and registered installers from across the United States. Once a new manufactured home is inspected and found to be in compliance with the manufacturer's installation instructions, the certified inspector will affix a state insignia on the exterior of the home. A homeowner who elects to install his own home is not required to hire a registered installer, but must arrange for the inspection of the installation from a certified inspector.

The state requires a minimum of one inspection for a single-wide unit, and two for a double-wide unit, but an inspector may conduct as many inspections as deemed necessary.
