Mobile home Certificates

What is a Mobile Home Certificate

An official document from the Tax Assessor/Collector or his deputy showing the amount of delinquent taxes, penalties, interest and any known costs or expenses due the taxing jurisdictions on a specific property.

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) requires a Mobile Home Certificate before changing ownership on a Mobile Home. Click here for an example.

What is the cost for a Mobile Home Certificate?

There is a non-refundable fee of $10 for each tax certificate issued.

Are there any other requirements for a Mobile Home Certificate?

The estimated property tax for the upcoming year must be paid into escrow before a Mobile Home Certificate can be issued. This amount is held in escrow until the property tax for that year becomes due. At the time the property tax for that year becomes due, the amount prepaid and held in escrow is applied to pay the property tax levy.
