If you have the vin number you should be able to contact the local DMV office and they will advise as to who is currently listed as the title owner. if you suspect fraud, then you would need to secure a duplicate title

this information may help you in this process

After closing – Transferring ownership

  • Additional form needed, only signed by purchaser: Title Application (MVR-1): This form should be printed, filled in, and signed by the purchasers of the mobile home. Notary IS needed on this form too. This form will be given to the clerk at the local DMV in the county the mobile home is located.
  • Bring forms to your local DMV in the county to pay transfer tax (see bullet point below), fees, and transfer ownership. Only buyer(s) must be present at DMV to transfer title, however ideally buyer and seller go to DMV to transfer title to help expedite any last-minute issues that arise at the DMV. All forms should already be signed. No notary is needed.
  • Same-day-Title: For an extra fee you may be able to expedite the title and walk out of the DMV with a new title in your hand. This same day title is available only at the following two DMV locations: 1100 New Bern Ave. Raleigh, NC 27697 &***** Charlotte, NC 28216.
  • If transferring ownership to husband, wife, parent, child, stepparent, or stepchild then the buyer is exempt from paying specific taxes on the sale. Submit this HUT exemption certificate to the DMV as well.
  • If for any reason a lien needs to be placed on the title, this will be done at the DMV while talking with the clerk that is helping you. The clerk will want to know the name of the lienholder and their address. The new title will be sent to the lienholder’s address. The lienholders will then transfer the title to you once they are paid in full.
  • Taxes moving forward for new owner: The owner will receive a tax bill in the mail yearly.
  • If you are the seller: It can be wise to go with the buyer to the DMV to make sure the ownership is transferred correctly so that taxes and liability is not in your name moving forward. Some buyers wait years to transfer title/ownership.
  • If you are the buyer: Aim to transfer ownership through the DMV soon after you purchase the mobile home to avoid a penalty or complications when you eventually do transfer ownership/title.
