A new law allows licensed residential building contractors to install used manufactured homes and allows the contractor to affix installation seals to used manufactured homes. The seals are labels secured to the outside of homes.
Effective April 14, 2022, the law allows a seal to be issued to licensed residential building contractors following completion of a three-hour training course relating to the installation of manufactured homes. The training course must be approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development or its commissioner.
The law’s purpose is to simplify the installation process by decreasing delays and lowering costs.
Rep. Rob Ecklund (DFL-International Falls) and Sen. Jason Rarick (R-Pine City) are the sponsors.
