Did you Know?
That there are 2,224,101 vehicles registered in Nebraska.
Every owner of a mobile/maufactured home is required to obtain a Nebraska Certificate of Title prior to affixing the home to real estate.
If a mobile/manufactured home has been affixed to real estate and a Nebraska Certificate of Title was not issued before it was affixed, the owner shall apply for and be issued a Certifiate of title at any time for the sole purpose of surrendering such title for cancellation.
If you own a mobile/manufactured home, which has a Certificate of Title, that is affixed to real property in which you have any ownership interest , the Certificate of Title may be surrendered to the County Treasurer where the real property is located along with an Affidavit of Affixture for a Mobile Home with a Nebraska Certificate of Title * for cancellation.
If the Department of Motor Vehicles issued the Certificate of Title, the Affidavit of Affixture for a Mobile Home with a Nebraska Certificate of Title will be filed at the Department.
Along with the Certificate of Title, you must submit the following:
If the mobile/manufactured home has two vehicle identification numbers (two MSO's were provided when new), two Affidavits and two Certificates of Title shall be submitted.
If the Certificate(s) of Title has been lost, you must obtain a duplicate title and submit that along with the Affidavit.
Upon receipt of the Affidavit and Certificate of Title, the County Motor Vehicle Office or DMV will:
Upon receipt of a copy of the Affidavit, the DMV will enter a “Cancelled – Real Estate” status onto the title record. This status will prevent the issuance of any duplicate or corrected titles. A subsequent new title will be allowed only upon presentation of an Affidavit of Detachment .
Once the affidavit has been filed with the County Motor Vehicle Office or DMV, the owner of the mobile/manufactured home may convey ownership only as a part of the real estate to which it is affixed.
Ownership interest means the fee simple interest in real estate or an interest as the lessee under a lease of the real property that has a term that continues for at least twenty (20) years after the recording of the affidavit
If the owner of a mobile home does not currently hold a Certificate of Title, and cannot produce the proper evidence of ownership for issuance of a Certificate of Title, he/she may apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles for a Bonded Certificate of Title and upon issuance of the Bonded Certificate of Title the owner may surrender it to the Department of Motor Vehicles with an Affidavit of Affixture for a Mobile Home with a Nebraska Certificate of Title for cancellation.
The current owner of a mobile/manufactured home shall not detach it from real estate before a Certificate of Title has been issued.
If the vehicle record has a status of “Cancelled – Real Estate”, before making application for a Certificate of Title an Affidavit of Detachment for a Mobile Home * must be recorded in the office of the Register of Deeds in the county where the Affidavit of Affixture for a Mobile Home with a Nebraska Certificate of Title was originally recorded.
The Register of Deeds will collect the appropriate fee from you for the filing of the Affidavit. The fees are $5.00 per page and 50¢ per lot or section.
The Register of Deeds will provide a recorded copy of the submitted Affidavit to the County Motor Vehicle Office in your county. Photocopies will also be provided to you.
The County Motor Vehicle Offie will need to be in receipt of a photocopy of the recorded Affidavit prior to the issuance of the Certificate of Title.
The recorded copy of the Affidavit of Detachment, forwarded by the Register of Deeds, may be used by the County Motor Vehicle Office as proof of ownership for issuance of the new Nebraska Certificate of Title when submitted with an Application for Certificate of Title.
If a Certificate of Title is issued, the mobile/manufactured home is no longer considered part of the real property and any lien shall be perfected against the Certificate of Title and the owner may convey ownership only by way of a Certificate of Title.
